Bullet-Shooting Nazi Belt Buckle Sells for $20,700

An authentic Nazi belt buckle chambered in .22 LR recently sold for over $20,000.

You’ve got to hand it to ze Germans. With all of their leather coats and fanatical attention to detail, they really knew how to go to war in style. Wearing this belt buckle probably won’t make you many friends outside of the skinhead community, but you have to agree that it looks slick.

This belt buckle is the brainchild of Louis Marquis, a designer and inventor. He came up with the idea after a stint in a WWI POW camp. When word got out of his invention he received an order to make a few for Heinrich Himmler. Himmler was the Chief of the German Police and the Minster of the Interior during WWII, and he figured that it would be handy to give these to a few top German officers so they could literally air-hump their captors’ to death if they ever got captured.

So, how’s it work? Most of the time you just wear as a fashion accessory. When you’re feeling threatened, you pull up the panel to reveal four 1 ¾-inch barrels with individual triggers on the side.

This device bears the serial number 2 on many of its parts, and with only 10 of these belt buckles ever documented you know that this is a rare find. It recently sold for $20,700 at an auction.
