Does anyone know what the marking ING 124 on the left hand side of the frame for a CZ38 stands for. Could it be a unit mark? The pistol is a late war P39t with the appropriate WaA76 markings and crude finish, 1940 hardshell holster and spare mag. However I've not heard or seen of one with those markings. I would like to add this one to my collection but concerned whether or not the frame marking is possibly post war east german. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
this is most likely a Police Serial number added by Ingram County [Michigan]. I would bet there is no SN on the frame? If so, the cops would add the ING + number to the frame to conform to American law.
I used to own a Mod HP that had the SN removed...then CII and a 4 digit number was stamped on it by the Cal State CII dept.

Orv, thanks for the feedback. That makes all the sense in world as the gun has no serial number. You can't transfer a gun without some form of identifying number. You guys are living proof that it's better to ask questions before buying. I thought it was a unit mark which would be consistant with the premium being asked for the rig. However I now know better.
