Description:

In 1981 the Willi Korth firm including all inventory, tools, and drawings were sold to Count Nikolas von Bernstorff. Inventor Willi Korth would stay on in a supervisory role with the company until 1983 when he resigned due to failing health. Stainless steel models were introduced in 1985. Manufactured in 1987 with a wedge shaped serrated blade front and adjustable rear notch sights, two-piece barrel construction consisting of an outer shroud and rifled liner, standard markings and German proofs, small import mark on the frame under the cylinder, cylinder release at the right rear of the frame next to the hammer, serrated trigger with adjustable stop, and wide serrated hammer. With checkered thumbrest grips. With original box.

Rating Definition:

Excellent. With a dark line on the cylinder, light barrel markings, and handling marks overall. Grips are very good with a visible crack on the butt of the left panel, crisp checkering, and small dings. Mechanically excellent. Box is good with some small holes, heavy corner and edge wear, and storage marks.
