https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grossfuss_SturmgewehrAlthough the existence of the Grossfuss Sturmgewehr and its basic principle of operation became known in the West in the decade following the end of the war, hardly anything else transpired from behind the Iron Curtain. According to a 1958 book of the US Army Ordnance Corps:
The firm of Grossfuss in Dobelin produced a unique retarded blowback gas-actuated system, no specimens of which has ever been seen. The Grossfuss weapon was reported exhibited to the Spree Ministry Waffenkommission, but apparently never reached WaPruf 2 [Dept. for Development and Testing of the Heereswaffenamt]. Development was dated late 1944 or early 1945.
