Description:

Manufactured in 1939 the VIS-35 Pistol was the standard sidearm of Poland and following the invasion and occupation in September 1939, it became a secondary arm for the Wehrmacht. The pre-Occupation pistols show a level of fit and finish not seen on the ones produced for the Germans, and bear the Polish Eagle on the left side of the slide between the model, date and patent markings. Fixed sights with "F.B. RADOM/1939r." and "VIS-wz.35/pat.Nr.15567" on the left side of the slide, numerous small proofs on both sides of the trigger guard and matching numbers on the frame, slide and barrel. Equipped with a takedown catch and a slotted back strap for mounting a stock, both features eliminated during the occupation, and fitted with a pair of checkered grips marked "FB" and "VIS" on the left and right side, respectively. Provenance: The Mel Raucher Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 90% plus original blue finish, showing bright wear along the high edges and on the front strap, scattered patches of pitting on the left side of the slide, and light handling marks overall. The grips are very fine, with some mild dents. Mechanically excellent.
