Pictured here is an example of a pre-war Czech JAGA pistol that was a personal sidearm for a Wehrmacht officer. The German Captain was in the Quartermaster Corps [ supply ] who was over 6 foot tall and weighted more than 300 lbs at time of capture, some 30 miles north of Munich in April of 1945. It would appear that not all of the supplies reach the front. This pistol was the forerunner of the Czech Duo and ceased production in late 1939 or early 1940.
