The marking you are referring to is an import stamp. After 1968 all firearms imported into the US were required to be marked by the importer of record, so no suprises there. How many were imported by this company is anyones guess. Could be a couple of hundred, could be be a couple of thousand.

The holster is for a P39t. If you look closely at the inside of the lid, you can see it is stamped 'P39t'. These were Czech pistols put into service by the Germans during WW2. I believe they were made in .380.

I love the look of the VoPo grips. Such curious guns. Seems their interest has been picking up and I got to get one before they become too hot of a commodity.

  • E.C.C.S.A is the import neumonic of the Crossroad's gun shop in Hoboken N,J. This outfit brought in a number of VOPO's around 1990. Often these were number matching altho it was common to see small replacement parts w/ an electroetched matching number The barrel was typically replaced as can be seen by the post war crown over n mark.
  • Your example benefits from having both matching numbered mags. The value of these East German refurbishments has been slowly growing with time.

  • As you may know by now, your "DLWP" marked 39(t) holster was made by "Deutsche Lederworkstatten, GmbH" in 1940 in the town of Pirmasens.
  • The "2/1001" on the magazine is the code for the East German Ernst Thielmann factory. This was the post war renamed Haenel (code 122/fxo) factory famous for the fabrication of the Schmeisser designed improved magazine. .
