Whilst Matt is off enjoying himself (and working) in Vegas at the SHOT Show, Vic looks at an interesting piece he finds in one of the surplus dealers he visits in Germany. The Czech Small Arms SA vz61 'Skorpion' blank firing pistol in 9mm knall (blank). A pistol manufactured for the reenactor and film markets!
