Nice one........probably Bavarian. I think there is still some debabte on the meaning of 'Prv'. However, I have not yet heard a more reasonable alternative explanation. It seems the Prv is more common on the bug proofed vs the C/N ones.
Here is mine - for sure absolutely not in the condition as your ecellent find...

interesting.......I wonder how many others just have the letter P.Just a letter "P", not "Prv"...
If the theory is that the "Prv" indicates private purchase by a German military officer, how would it be on an American Eagle?I have one of each. The Prv. pistol is a New Model American Eagle.
