Assuming that a "force matched" pistol is one that has has a serial number added or modified, post production.
I am sending two photos:
My Romanian has neither the star mark, nor has it been forced matched.
My TT33 was manufactured in 1937 at the Tula arsenal south of Moscow, and is marked by a very similar star which signifys the Tula arsenal.
I have seen a similar query re. the same star marking on an HSc.
Could it be possible that your Romanian was captured by the Ruskys and reworked or force matched at the Tula arsenal? Download Attachment: Steyr-Hahn-Romanian-1.jpg
