Paul......... Welcome to the forum. The term "black widow" is a term to discribe late war Mausers that have black grips and black bottom fxo mags. There are several schools of thought as to just when they started using the black grips. A lot of people feel it was early in the 1941 production of BYF marked guns. You might do a search on this forum for Black Widow and I think you will get some good information and some interesting opinions. Enjoy......

dave is correct, also, keep in mind that if you say "black widow" to a German collector and they roll their eyes... It was never a true term in europe and still isn't.
