    I also thought about a TT. It looks a bit small for being a 1911. The lenghth is 14,5 cm

    So it's not a TT. TT has a length of 195 mm.

    Thank you! You got it right! Now the question is how it ended up in Austria Was it used during WW2? I believe it came from a military dump (as for the mag, I did not dig it myself) where mainly german stuff was found.

    I found a picture on the net and it matches perfectly

    Here's the picture of the barrel after final restoration. I cleaned it with evapo-rust and added a natural bee wax finish.
