Perhaps a Frankenpistol from WW2? That's the best I got.
Interesting Union Switch and Signal frame that's been imported into Germany. This is going to make me get a book out!
Sights killed the slide value. And the markings kill the frame value.
On a side note. The Germans should have marked the barrel somewhere.
If it was original and correct with this work done it would be truly sad.
At least yours is an import marked mixmaster.
There were a lot of folks that customized their correct guns.
That's when you take your $2000 gun. Have $400 worth of work done.
And turn it into a $500 shooter.
Think of it like the 57' Chevy principle. If people hadn't hot-rodded them, made gassers out of them, raced them, and wrapped them around trees on back country roads and ridges all over the country, there would be thousands more of them and they wouldn't be worth near as much.
Likewise if people didn't make defensive guns, race guns, sporting guns, bullseye guns, and the like out of 1911's, revolvers, and military rifles, then there would be millions more in original condition and the values wouldn't be there.
The nice thing is that rear sight will slide right out and the original can be pushed right back in!!
The front sight is a wide tenon, remove it and put an original back in it's place...
Parkerize the whole thing and enjoy!
