Did I miss the part where they told her it was worth that much ?

I'm not savvy enough to know what it was, but I's sure like to know!
Kudos to the Hartford cops for not turning it into a manhole cover.

The real AK47 that the stupid commies stole the design

I think it is a STG-44 German Assault Rifle.

Based on the description I would agree that it sounds like an StG-44.
Some nasty quotes from the article:
"This is a gun that should actually be in a museum rather than in a shredder."
Because there are only two places a gun should be.
"I give her credit for bringing it to us."
Wow! She screwed up and did something foolish - taking an item of unknown value and basically throwing it away.
If you didn't notice.....I'm not a big fan of the "buy back" type programs.

Lucky for her it was Hartford CT. If it had been NYC or Chicago it would have just disappeared from the turn in table and someone else would be $30,000-40,000 richer right now.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

At the end of the story, it said the woman will be allowed to sell the gun. Seems like they did her a huge favor and hopefully the gun will end up on display somewhere safe like a museum.

I think it's cool they are letting her sell it and keep the money. Good story.

Kudos to them for giving it back, but the "allow" her to sell it really irks me. Wonder if it was ever registered with BATF and if they'll come knocking on her door.

The last buy back here in Orlando a Civil War era rifle was turned in and headed for the "shredder". Not sure of the make/model but a damn shame anyway.
