EU Certificated MATCHING NUMBERS, 1912 Dated WW1/WW2 , Austrian Steyr-Hahn Model 1911 9mm Semi Automatic Pistol. Sn 12404 - 12404
The Steyr M1911 is a semi-automatic pistol developed in 1911 by the Austrian firm Steyr Mannlicher and designed by Karl Krnka, based on the mechanism of the Roth-Steyr M1907. It was developed for the Austro-Hungarian Army and issued to Cavalry Officers. It was in service in WW1 and in a limited capacity for the Wehrmacht until the end of World War II. The Steyr M1911 is usually known as the Steyr-Hahn (Steyr-Hammer) because of its external hammer. These pistols are loaded from the top with an 8 round stripper clip and they were known for their reliability. This is a very good original example made for a Chilean Government contract and no doubt issued to Chilean Cavalry Officers. All metal and its original wood grips are undamaged. The metal work has even patina. The left side of the slide is marked with the manufacturer’s name ‘Steyr’ and dated ‘1912’ together with 'Mod1911' model detail. The left side of the slide, frame and butt are marked with matching numbers '3952C'. The right side of the frame is marked ‘Ejercito de Chile’ and the left with heraldic arms. It is fitted with military lanyard bar and strips, cocks & dry fires perfectly. Price for this rare pistol includes EU deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 12404
