This HP has a proof mark (left side of the trigger web). According to Vanderlinden this may be a gun that was issued (without additional marks added to the Belgium proofs) and then repaired and the German proof added.

Hi Bob,

On page 187 Vanderlinden says "These guns (Prewar Belgian army proofed) were not marked after the capitulation of Belgium. Some guns were repaired at the factory and were stamped with the testproof but not the WaA marking."

Note that on page 188 he suggests that the first serial number of the WaA 613 accepted frames was 44500. So this gun was probably just issued prior to the take over by the Germans or was at least on its way out of the factory.

No indication of a repair. The bore is rough which does not match the rest of the gun. I am guessing that this indicates the gun was fired a couple times and not cleaned.

I purchased this gun from Harold Anderson. He had it in his collection for a number of years.

Cheers,
Ted
