"But arms experts said a drawing on the base of the statue showed the StG 44 rifle used by the Nazis during WWII.
It was removed by an angle grinder."

    That might be more accurate- - - - -didn't Kalashnikov steal most of the STG-44 design to make his own weapon? I know a guy who has one of those- - - - -it followed his uncle home after the war like Johnny Cash's Cadillac- - - - -"One piece at a time!". He was an MP in Berlin during the occupation after the war.
