WWII Relic Hunting / Metal Detecting WW2 Episode 10. This is a video of our first tour of 2014. Unlike last time, this was a decent two-day tour. We found a second small dump pit with a total of 2 equipment pieces in it, plus a German Wehrmacht fire extinguisher in a really amazing condition.

On this trip we found the Italian Beretta Model 38, and the American M1A1 Carbine, with folding stock, the paratrooper edition of the carbine. Both pieces were quite popular in WWII and most likely used as so-called Beutewaffen (captured equipment) by the Germans. Both incredible finds. We also found another unique piece, the PPS-43, another find we hadn’t found before.
