2/12/19 - This is an all original M1935A rig, 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 95-96%, with an area of finish loss on the front strap and another on the trigger guard. It is all correct and original with an excellent bore. The rig is complete with an original but unmarked holster, and two spare magazine. Left grip panel does have a small crack in the top.
