Very cool piece of WWII history, congratulations. Where those made in Belgium after the Germans overran the factory? I can't remember what the story was.
My 1911A1 shares a stable with a '45 P-38 (ac) and '36 P-08 (byf).
As soon as the Germans took Belgium they continued production in the FN factories and started stamping Waffenamt's on these.
Good enough for the Belgian Army, good enough for the German Army.
Both Ford and General Motors built military vehicles for both the US and German Armies. Business knows no loyalties.
My antique pistol collection count has been zero forever because I absolutely refuse to pay more than any other bidder. I feel such a winner.Very nice pistol congratulations. But you didn't win anything. What you did was pay more then anyone else never understood why this would be considered winning.
Well I mean...they continued manufacture by forced labor so probably a little different here.
Yes you are correct. It is all matching numbers except for the toggle, which is BYF. The frame has the earlier style pre-war waffenamts and code "G". I assume it is an RC, as the date on the toggle is x'd out.Is your luger mismatched? As they made byf's in 41 and 42 if I remember right
Haha maybe so, I actually have yet to even shoot my Luger, p38, or HighpowerAwesome highpower! I just had a terrible thought: you COULD pull rear sight and put in an Aluminum Chinese "Mauser" scope mount. Then mount a laser sight on it, hahaha. But great gun if you dont!
