Thank you the quick answer. I've found the "2/1001" and the Crown/N stamp but no digits.Maybe... but maybe not. I see three things that suggest the possibility that it's a Vopo. First is the electro penciled sear bar "82" indicating a replacement part force matched to the gun. Second is the barrel sides not being smoothly polished near the muzzle and third is the dull zinc looking magazine base. I have a Vopo Luger with a matching mag just like that.
Look on the underside of the barrel for a Crown/N stamp and possibly three digits that would indicate an East German replacement barrel. Check the magazine for "2/1001" markings on the side of the body near the base. Finally, look at the front of the frame to see if it has been "scrubbed" of it's original serial number and re-numbered. One of your pictures show the receiver rails estending slightly beyond the frame, an indication that the frame may have been ground down a little.
I am very impressed by all this expertise. Thank you all very much!I was going to say no, not Vopo, but after reviewing Doubs comments ( ) and realizing he was onto something, then you showed the matching magazine. Its either a very luck magazine matching (which happens), or more likely a DDR (vopo) that was not changed or marked.
Its a nice vopo / nice luger
Hello VlimProbably a 1990s Frankonia rework of a VoPo. These were well done, equipped with Nill grips and a full overhaul.
Here is a similar one. Crown/N barrel, DDR magazine. With the box and manual. The manual is new old Mauser stock, reused for the 1990s refurbs.

Thank you very much for this answer.They are both doing well
It is the first scenario. From Wehrmacht to DDR to Frankonia.
Mauser obtained a number of guns from the same source and had them rebuilt with their own high gloss finish and marked with the Mauser company name together with the rebuild date, usually 1997 or 1998. But the Frankonia ones have a more traditional, more matte dip blue.
