Jan/Jeff.... Added the new number to the list with note about 99xxh. I found the number on some notes from 2012 but do not really recall where it came from. My guess is that it is probably the same pistol. Tough getting good help. Thanks to all for the input
Pete.... I am pretty sure the following are correct. Not sure that they were "threaded" in the sense of someone tapping a hole. They did use some type of tool to extract them from the molds but I am not sure what that looked like but would love to see an example. I have gotten to know one of the young men that imports them from Russia and he told me once that the "next generation" will be bakelite and pass the "hot pin" and famous Ebbink castanets tests. He reads this Forum and the books...... and so it goes.....
infanterist2....Thank you for the information. Can you post a picture of the insides of the grips? They look like they are black to me but a picture of the insides will settle that and also tell us what type they are.
