Hi all! Just in the process of registering on as many national gun forums as I can to post info on a gun that was stolen from my dad way back in the early 80's in western NC. I have low expectations, but since the gun meant so much to him, I am at least going to try. He passed a few years ago and what few guns he had left along with the original war trophy paperwork on this particular gun was passed down to me. My only hope is that since it is such an unusual gun, it may have fallen into the hands of a gun collector or enthusiast that frequents one of these forums. I know, slim to no chance. Anyway, it is a CHICOM K-54 7.62mm pistol with the serial # beginning with 13 and ending with 41 (yes I have the rest of it, but not sure when or if I should post the entire serial# unless I get some potential feedback). He brought it back from Vietnam in 1971. Again, it was stolen from our house when I was around 12 or 13 years-old in the early 80's. I have all the original military and Vietnamese registration and export paperwork. My next step besides posting on collector forum sites, is to contact the local law enforcement in the town it was stolen, and see if they can run the serial # through the NCIC database. I can't imagine the original police report is still on file from the 80's and I did not find any copy of it in my dad's personal belongings. I live in Kansas now, but my mom and brother still live in the town the gun was stolen in. In fact, my mom still lives in the same house. Any suggestions or advice beyond these steps would be appreciated. I know I am up against it given how long it has been gone, but the internet can do amazing things. Again, I just hope it may have fallen into a collector's hands or someone who registered the serial#. Otherwise, it is probably a lost cause. Just have to at least give it the effort. Is there a particular forum on this site I should post this info on besides the new member welcome. Thanks again for any help on my one in a million endeavor.
