This a restored and updated posting !
The Belgian A.E.P. firm ( Anciens Etablissements Pieper, Herstal )purchased in 1907 the manufacturing rights for this pistol from the German Bergmann Industriewerke ( Theodor Bergmann ) and called it the Bayard Model 1908 ( Cal. 9mm Bergmann Bayard ).
In 1910 this pistol was adopted by the Danish Army as the Model 1910. The Army purchased a quantity of 4840.Upon the delivery, the Army applied their own serial numbers on the right side of the frame.
In the period of 1922 to 1935 the Danish Army produced 2204 ( 900 ? ) pistols more with slight modifications in the Haerns Rustkammer or Haerens Tojhus and called it the Model 1910/21.
The 4840 A.E.P. manufactured pistols were modified and stamped 1910/22.
After the German occupation in 1940 these pistols were inspected by the Heereswaffenamt. Some of them were reworked and stamped with an additional Danish !! Crown/DK or Crown 41, 42 or 43 stamp. After 1943 very few are stamped with the E/WaA C6 acceptance stamp.
The German designation for the pistol was P.644(d). See page 48 of the "Kennblätter fremden Geräts" Vol. 1, 20.3.41, Oberkommando des Heeres --Waffenamt.
