7/10/18 - This is an all original M1935A, manufactured by SACM (Societe Alsacienne Construction Mecanique) in Cholet, France. It is Nazi-marked E/WaA251 on the left side of the slide, making this the more common 2nd variation model of these pistols. Overall, they remain fairly scarce for German Army pistols of that time, with only about ~24,000 produced. The serial dates this one to the earlier end of the range, likely produced somewhere around 1941-1942. The original finish is about 85%, with multiple areas of typical wear/finish loss on frame and slide. It is all correct and original with an excellent bore. Grips are in great condition with no cracks or chips.
