#CC2 FP-45 Liberator Pistol
Original WWII deactivated / DEWAT FP-45 Liberator pistol. The pistols main purpose during WWII was psychological, it was believed that if vast quantities of these pistols were dropped behind enemy lines the resistance movement would have enough weapons to have a devastating effect on enemy moral. In the end, however, under 25,000 made it to the resistance. This example is all original without any damage or modification with original finish on the few parts that were factory finished such as the cocking hammer. Older style clean “cock-and-click” deactivation which is a real bonus, there is no license required for the sale of deactivated firearms in Canada. Included with the original pistol, is a reproduction waxed box and instructions with some dummy wartime display ammunition. The box is reproduction but looks excellent to complete the display, a wooden dowel is also included. Due to international laws regarding deactivated war trophy’s, we will only ship this to destinations in Canada. In our opinion, it would be nearly impossible to find a better example of this very rare pistol in this form, it’s the best one we’ve handled and is museum grade. $2000
