I recently picked up a Nazi marked FN 1922. The pistol has a weak blueing and a German army proof mark on the frame, slide and chamber, but no acceptance marks of any kind. Would this have been late war and the acceptance marks were just left off?
It sounds like it may be a wartime commercial pistol for sale to qualified/approved persons. These pistols will only have the Eagle N proof. I think most were made late in the war.
Pictures and serial number would help.
* An eagle/swastika is the official Power Proof stamp for German Military pistols of that period.
* An E/WaAxxx is the Waffenamt(Army Inspector) acceptance mark on behalf of the German Military.
