RCMP looking for old gun’s owner

Mounties say the pistol could be quite valuable and are looking to find its rightful owner

Surrey RCMP are looking to connect an antique gun with its rightful owner.

Last September, someone turned in the antique pistol to the Surrey RCMP Guildford office.

Police have since determined the pistol is quite valuable given its age.

The last person to register this pistol is deceased and its true owner is unknown.

It is described as a semi-automatic with a weathered black frame and slide.  It is missing the pistol grip.

Special markings that are specific to this pistol have been obscured in the photo so that the rightful owner can identify it to police.

“My grandfather obtained several weapons during his time in the Canadian Army and World War II, and those guns still have sentimental value to my family,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said in a release. “I’m sure it would have the same value to the owner, and given its age,  it would also have value to a collector. We hope that we can find the rightful owner of this unique item soon.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca. Please quote file #2016-27178.
