A Model 1912 Frommer Stop, 7.65 pistol. Believe it to be a Hungarian military contract, though many were sold as private purchase to officer's. This model pistol was made in Hungry from 1912 into the 1920s. There is a unit mark, 2.T.O.G.1.1.15., located on the left frame between the trigger guard and the wood grip. On the forward area of the trigger guard web is the Hungarian proof stamps, Bp. shield. 2C. The C could be the result of a broken stamp and actually mean 20. Serial # 28 98xx. On the bottom of the mag it is stamped, Frommer 7.65mm.

Not familiar with this model and find it to be interesting. Any comments from the membership would be appreciated.

You have a Hungarian marked Frommer Stop dated 1920 and not 2C. I like the unit markings which are not often found on the Stops.......At least all the ones, I've seen!

Apparently this pistol was manufactured in 1920. It is not a letter C, but a broken number stamp that never closed the zero. The shield is a Hungarian crest. Still cannot get any answers on this unit mark, other than the T might indicate train regiment. No idea what the letters O and G stand for. Somebody went to a lot of effort stamping all those letters and numbers. along with the periods, so it meant something.
