Description:

These desirable pistols were a modified copy of the U.S. Model 1911 pistol intended to be supplied to the Norwegian Army until the capture of the Kongsberg plant by the Germans in 1940, designating this model "Pistole 657(n)". Following the end of World War II, these pistols were never manufactured again. Some pistols were assembled following the end of the war from the components remaining in the factory. These examples are dated "1942" on the right of the slide with the one-line "11.25mm AUT. PISTOL M 1914 No. Serial Number" with the later Kongsberg crest on the left. The pistols are fitted with the later style black stained, checkered, double diamond holly grips. Both pistols have inspection marks below the date and behind the rear sight. Matching serial numbers on frame, slide, trigger, safety, mainspring housing, grip safety, slide stop and barrel. Includes display plaque.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 99% refinished phosphate finish with a few minor handling marks. The grips are very good with softened checkering. Mechanically excellent.
