Description:

The Model 39 was the first 9 mm double action, semi-automatic pistol produced in the U.S. Steel frame models, like this example, were first introduced in 1954, but not assembled or sold until 1966 with only 927 manufactured. With original box with "Steel" noted in the special features section of the end label, an extra magazine, instructions and registration card.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 95% plus original blue finish with edge wear on the slide at the muzzle, very slight thinning on the front strap and some minor handling marks. The grips are fine with minor dings and scratches and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The box is very good with a hole on the bottom and edge wear.
