Manufactured for commercial sale, this pistol appears to be one of a group produced while manufacture was shifting from DWM (then under the umbrella of BKIW) to Mauser, which included weapons made from parts left over from DWM's run. Fixed sights, with a "DWM" marked front toggle link, blank chamber, and "crown/crown/U" proofs on the barrel, receiver and breechblock. Straw finished small parts, with a pair of checkered grips and a nickel-finished magazine with unmarked hardwood base. Includes a black leather police-style holster, dated 1933 with Shambach & Co (Berlin) maker's mark on the rear between the belt loops.
Excellent, with 98% original blue, showing wear on the high edges, mild handling marks and some minor spotting. 90% plus original straw colors are present on the small parts, with the excellent grips showing some mild dings on the otherwise sharp checkering. The holster is fine, with minor scratches and scuffs. Mechanically excellent.
