I just took possession of this little Langenhan 6.35 Model 2. It is an export marked ("Germany") version with the variation takedown lever instead of screw on the slide. This makes takedown simple and fast for cleaning.
The gun has C/N stamps on the frame, slide and breechblock, and is serialed internally 955. Quite an interesting little design and has the typical Langenhan problem of having only the small crosspin lever holding the gun together and keeping the breechblock from flying back. The 7.65 Selbstlader of course has the equal problem of failure if the retaining screw were to loosen, which is apparently the case in many guns. This gun seems to function fine, however.

Tom,
A real nice little 6.35!! The one I had was only a representative piece...i.e. 60% blue!. Some people are always warning about the possibility of the screw coming loose at the back of the 7.65 model.....If you think a bit, if the screw came loose and the yoke moved upward, it would block the rear sight and you would notice it. I really like these pistols and shoot the 7.65 regularly...so I'm a bit crazy!! ;))

Tom,
Sounds like a nice find. I found a 7.65 which I considered
buying but there was a couple of holes in the grips. I didn't
think that I would be able to get good replacing grips. The
grips on gun were thin and I wonder if this native these guns.

Ray,

My Langenhan grips are nice, but my Dreyse and my 1st
Jager had worm damage to their grips, so there must be
some tasty substance contained within them. Repros are
usually modern plastic and most shouldn't be worm eaten.

Could anyone here remove the safety and post a pic of it? I just got ahold of one of theses mod II 6.35 with a missing safety. Would like to find or make one.
