Settlement Reached in Case of Feds Seizing Polish Rifle From Virginia Collector

Poland will buy the wz.38M Maroszek rifle


The bitter international dispute that began when the Polish government had U.S. federal agents seize a rare rifle from a Fredericksburg gun collector has ended. Poland is buying the weapon.

The collector will get $25,000 for the wz.38M Maroszek rifle, along with a promise that it will be displayed in the Warsaw Uprising Museum. The country also agreed to send Kristopher Gasior, the 54-year-old Virginia collector, a thank-you letter noting his "valuable contribution to preserving Polish historical memory and to honoring Polish heroes and freedom fighters by saving and preserving this unique rifle."
