Rare WWII German belt buckle 22 caliber pistol, exclusively made for high ranking German officers. This pistol was known as the SS-Waffenakademie Koppelschloßpistole (Belt Castle Gun). Designed by Louis Marquis while he was in a prisoner of war camp during WWI, the belt buckle gun was given to Nazi officers during WWII as a last ditch effort to avoid capture. Two designs were made. One with two 7.65mm smoothbore barrels and the other with four smoothbore barrels in 5.6mm (.22 caliber). Marquis had his design patented in 1938 and since then, only twelve, including prototypes, have been reported to have been manufactured. The gun fires by opening the cover from the top lever, exposing the barrels. Both top and bottom levers are pressed to flip the barrels up in the firing position. The gun is fired by pushing the triggers down. The firing pins are recocked by pulling the left side lever down and pushing the barrels down into the closed position. The buckle has a brass cover with some minor dents on the inside. The barrels have some minor scratches on the top and dents around the chamber from the firing pins. Springs for the firing pins are a little stiff but still work. Whole housing is clean and has little to no marks or scratches. Screws near the arms for the belt are loose on the right side. Pistol comes with leather belt that has been used and has finish wear on one side. Belt is leather and has some scratches on the inside as well as paint coming off. Has certificate of authenticity from 2012 and letter from "Rock Island Arsenal Gun Auction". These are often faked due to the value of them so authenticity is unknown. Must see photos.
