Introduced prior to World War II as a rapid fire target pistol, the Erma 22 is built around a zinc alloy frame with a sharp and ergonomic grip angle similar to the Luger pistol. Elevation adjustable blade front and drift adjustable notch rear sights, with "crown/N" proofs on the barrel, slide and frame; matching full and partial numbers on several parts including the magazine, one piece checkered wrap-around grips and a combination safety and slide catch.

Rating Definition:

Excellent with 90% of the original blue finish showing some mild spotting and handling marks overall. The frame shows a mixed gray color overall. There are a few light scuffs on the otherwise very good grips. The magazine has machined catch notches for both the Erma and a second pistol, likely a Luger. Mechanically excellent.
