Righto Hoba,
no signal pin, and the hammer ring is not grooved for a pin.
Our pistols have all of the characteristics of a Variation 2 in Dieter's book, except for the metal in the grips. They also lack the two piece firing pin that would make them a variation 1. So, it seems to me, they must be an intermediate variation--maybe a sub class of variation 2.

I think I've got a head ache.
I'm going to take a nap now.

The mark on Fritz´s pistol is FWW and means Waffen Frankonia Würzburg. Waffen Frankonia is German leading weapons & outdoor dealer. This size of marking was used some 20 years ago. Today Frankonia marking is much smaller.

Fritz,
I had sent my ser.# & photos to Dieter for his data base, and he emailed me the following:

"Did you realize that you have got the rare variation with two (!) lugs on the firing pin!? Congratulations! Dieter."

Kind of cool. I did not know about the rarity of the firing pin.
