    It's a shame the way it's been deactivated!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The barrel has been butchered with those holes drilled into it, but it looks as though it hasn't had the chamber cut. Obviously done to different spec than the British specs. But for that price you can't really complain. A few blobs of weld to the holes, and then properly ground down to match the contours of the barrel. A spot of bluing, and you have a nice cheap DWM PO8!

    I really appreciate you help in this case. It's been deactivated by the German laws in 1980's. Here in Hungary the methos are the same (holes drilled in the barell..etc.)..SHAME.

    Thanks a million indeed!

    If the gun has matching numbers and you don't mind the holes then you have a good one! If it isn't a matching numbers one or these holes detract your eye pleasure then wait for another opportunity!
    I've learned that in this hobby eventually you will find the perfect, in your eyes, item if you have the patience!

    Now it's up to you about this one! If it was me i would prefer a rusty and extremely damaged one from one that has modern holes on the surface and can be seen without dissasembling the gun!

    Good luck friend!

    In Canada that would go for A LOT more.

    650 euros is normal price but nothing too cheap. in Germany it is possible to get a P08 even cheaper.
