    Another new addition this week, a JHV 43 Femaru with an unnumbered magazine. I've also been able to pick up a matching 1943 Drop Holster for it. I'm on the hunt for a second magazine now just in case someone out there may have one they would be willing to part with. Thanks! David

    Nice pistol.

    I always wondered why the Germans issued mostly Cal 7,65 mm pistols (apart from the usual 9mm para's)? This Femaru was also made in 9mm short as were many of these smaller pistols.

    Did the Germans consider the 7,65mm superior to the 9mm short round and on what grounds?

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Emile that's a great question. I will say that I have a large number of 7.65 or .32's in my collection. I believe the 7.65 came first and was tried and proven, then the 9mm came along and was found to have more punch. I will leave it for the experts to comment further.

    Adding an additional picture to the thread, this was taken with no flash and natural lighting so the bluing shows up better.
