It is a shame that over the years some posted pictures just end up in the twilight zone lot of good information just gets lost.
Happy Hunting!

Is Jan Still even operating on this site anymore? Does not appear to be any activity by him. I think he sold off some/all of his unit marked Lugers a number of years ago? I wonder if he got out of this hobby.
