Ukrainian Civil War

My understanding was this display represents the Donetsk People's Republic which broke away from Ukraine in 2014 which started the ongoing civil war in that country. These items are rare in the USA...

Obscure Pistol

With no markings, how many people would pass by this pistol at a gun show and have no idea what it is. Another rare item from Bill's vault.

location
