NRA Senior Curator Philip Schreier accepts a CIA DEER Pistol into the museum’s collection on Tuesday May 22nd. Donating this extremely rare artifact is Master Armorer Thomas Ring. Mr. Ring donated both an original (relic) condition DEER pistol as well as a tool room prototype replica (with a rifled barrel) that he made himself. The DEER Pistol is considered the Vietnam era successor to the OSS .45 ACP Liberator from World War II. The DEER Pistol was made in 1964 and meant to be used arming resistance fighters who needed a 9mm pistol to acquire a better firearm. Less than 10 of these are known to exist and this relic example is possibly the only specimen likely to be on public display in this country. #NRAmuseums #donations #verycool
