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."
