Description:

Fixed sights, with the "1942" date over the chamber and the Mauser "banner" logo on the toggle. A set of "eagle/N" proofs are present on the extension and breechblock, and the "eagle/swastika L" Police stamp is on the right side of the extension. The barrel has the alignment mark and "8,83" diameter measurement but is otherwise unmarked. The barrel, magazine and grips are unnumbered, with visible numbers matching. The extension, sideplate and sear have been configured to accept a sear safety, which has been removed. Fitted with a set of checkered grips and a blued magazine with a black plastic base. The extra earlier production replacement magazine is nickel finished with a mixed numbered wood base, and the takedown tool is gray finished with no visible markings. The brown leather police-style holster is numbered (3666) to match the pistol on the back, along with a "police eagle" stamp and "Kern Klager & Cie/1939/Berlin".

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 95% of the original blue finish, showing some bright wear along the edges and mild handling marks. The grips are also excellent, with some dings and dark spots. The holster shows scuffing and scratches overall and some lost stitching on the hinge. Mechanically excellent.
