Cal. 7,63 mm, Nr. 191, Bright bore, barrel length 163 mm. Matching numbers. Magazine for seven rounds. Proof mark double crown/U. Turning sight scaled 1 - 5. Bolt rotary action with short recoil. Magazine safety. Locking bolt to keep the breech open. No markings or inscriptions. Original bluing, minor pitting on the right side of the frame and barrel. Walnut grip panels. Matching-numbered nickel-plated stick magazine with spur. Spare magazine with matching numbers (probably renewed). With an English manual, probably a reprint of the rare original manual.
The technically remarkable pistol was no success in Germany as it competed with the Mauser C 96 which was then well-established on the market. The few manufactured pistols allegedly went to Russia; the one offered here, however, without Cyrillic markings. Extremely rare collector's item.
German export license required: yes
