    Very very nice, pistol. Thanks for showing. I often wonder if the regimented German army made officers officially qualify at the range with the varied array of weapons they carried? It's hard to tell the size Bill. Is it the size of a Chief or bigger?

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Extremely nice little revolver, Bill !

    Cool to see the holster with it. Looks to be modified and cut-down automatic
    type WWII era holster. Interesting seeing the 'pips' attached to it.......
    ( I have a West Wall medal with a pip added to the parade
    mounted ribbon )

    Aren't these small caliber also known as 'VeloDog' or 'Bicycle' pistols ?
    Regards,


    Steve.
