Boy, Ed, I dunno, except maybe it isn't a rework, just added a sear safety.

I'm really glad you pointed it out, though, its a terrific cutaway. Perhaps the most noteworthy element about it is that the chamber is cutout, and you can very clearly see the "step" cut in the chamber.

Ed, well the 1912 itself is "cut away" but this bears a sear safety indicative of a Nazi era rework. It is hard to believe a sear safety would have been Added to Weimar cutaway, but maybe not impossible. The line might better say "Third Reich Police Ordanance Cutaway"

This was my take also, that a sear safety was added later. A great piece, but hard to believe a sear safety was added at a later date. No mag safety, so if it was at a police armorery, it would have to have been required (I would think), so I believe it would have been made after 1937 when they were no longer required.

To show just weimar is hard to prove unless a t/pv, or re-proofed, or other indication, like the 1920 marking.
