FWIW, it was illegal for GIs to "bring back" U.S. or Allied weapons. Enemy weapons were OK (not full auto though) and obviously German and Japanese guns were brought back by the ton. But bringing home a U.S. weapon was theft, pure and simple. Some got away with it, but quite a few GIs spent time in resorts like Ft. Leavenworth for "liberating" Uncle's gun.
