Now here it is, actualy it is not a "Ruby", it is stamped "DESTROYER"
It came with one spare mag and a [SA] stamped holster. The pistol itself is not [SA] stamped.
The assembling numbers on all the major parts match, the barrel is a little frostet, but has sharp lands.
So far it functions good, but have not tested for acuracy.

Can I have some explain about SA :
Those pistol where built by Spain for the french forces in 1915 because handgun penury.There's about seven or eight manufacture ;

This pistol seems to be same ,and there's some dif. between alls models ,so the mag are proper to the pistol-manu. some with 7 other with 8 or 9 rounds.

Alls where in 32 ACP and go with same holster.
In France the collectors call them "RUBY" all models mixed.

In July of 1919 and just after Finland gained it's independence from Russian the Finnish army ( Finnish army ownership marking is [SA] ) purchased 10,000 of these cheap little pistols from France.

BTW I am looking for and [SA] stamped version of one of these little cuties to fill a hole in my Finnish collection.

I would also like to have one with the SA stamp, but I am happy with this one.
It came out of Finnland, is worn an shoots great! Maybe it missed the SA stamping like two of my M27 did.
Maybe i will find a SA marked someday, Finnland is not that far away and importing is easy.

Was at the range today.
The POI is 4" low and 4" right at 25 meters, but goups are good.
It not as finely maschined as a Luger or a C96 but it served its purpose:)))))

So if I understand well it's like for the stock from LP : the Finland purchase them and adds [SA] on the stock for their own lugers.
Thanks for this info new for me.

Greetings All,

Unfortunately, I can't help any of you get an SA marked gun, but if anyone is interested in SA marked Ruby mags, I have a source in Finland where I can obtain them. Would be happy to put a group order together if anyone is interested.
