“Go For Broke” 442nd RCT CZ 27 Bringback from Hawaii!
 
442nd Vet bring back! This particular Czech CZ 27 bring back is from T/5 Tech Corporal William Takesaburo Oshiro. He was one of 650 men who served in the in the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion. The 522nd was an integral component of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Yet the unit itself also stood alone for its remarkable accomplishments. The 522nd successfully completed every one of its 52 assignments, supporting more than seven different army divisions and units. The men traveled 1,100 miles in pursuit of the retreating Germans, from the Saar and Rhine Rivers to the Austrian border. As you can see by the pics the gun has rust issues. The rust appears to be surface in nature. Obliviously, I didn't buy if for the condition but rather for the history. The additional pictures sent by the seller show the rust is not too deeply pitted. The grandson stated the gun was stored in the original holster from when his grandfather came home from the war until he died. The high Hawaiian humidity and leather holster probably contributed to the rust. This gun was purchased out of a Hawaiian estate. The gun was shipped from the vet's hometown in Hawaii. Before and after pictures of the rust removal.
