    serial number 991130, it also reads SA der NSDAP gruppe mitte
    I would say the finish is about 75%.

    Some better pictures of the left side markings would help and the inscription on the grip is hard to read. It looks like a Pre WWII Gun used by the SA / Brownshirts. Could be valuable but the condition is down. If rare enough it will offset the condition some.

    That is a nice piece of history. The things I see wrong with it is first that peppred finish really hurts the value as a collector pistol. The other confusing part is the production date is ,around 1937 and the SA Party was almost kapute.Remember the night of the long knives when Hitler had Rohm arrested & later murdered with most of the Brown Shirts. I cannot put a date but know it was early 1930's. That is also when Hitler made all the ROHM ingraved daggers to be ground off. That is why I am a little confused? Brings up the thought that a previous owner may have had it done. There is so much faking going on today it's awfull. You cannot even buy a German WW2 medal without finding later it's junk. Do not take any offence to what I have said, there just brings a big question mark to my head.
    If u should get this PP, I have a very nice eagle n slide with all the hardware in it, if interested let me know.
    Kind Regards

    The purge of the SA Brown Shirts, ( AKA Night of The Long Knives because of all the murders ) took place in 1934, after 1934 I can not see anything being engraved with any thing SA, it would be the same as saying " Hey, shoot me too " My book shows that serial number being used in 1937/1938, so , don't know, in this case I don't know if one plus one add up to two.

    There are many pistols exactly like this with serial numbers very close to this that are selling for many thousands of dollars. The sites that deal in German WWII exclusively seem to accept them as rare and correct.

    His money, but if I was the potential purchaser I would want more research. There is indeed a complete industry turing out fake, guns, knives, belt buckle's, rings, watches, even helmets and helmet liners, in the German relic market is not only buyer beware it is buyer be screwed.
