    Johnny, Yes there were the danish Bergman Model 10/21 can be found with WaA66 rework proofs, and some were converted to 9mm Luger calibre... There were also Belgian Bergmans purchased and captured in WW1 by the Germans.. I have a prewar Belgian bergman Bayard in my collection that is German Unit marked to a medical unit, And this weapon is featured on page 252 of Jan still's book ' CENTRAL POWER PISTOLS'.. Here are some picts that I took of the WW1 German issued Bergman Bayard...BILL

    You mention that the markings are for a WWI German Medical unit ("L.S.K.16.34."). What does the LSK stand for? I have seen two other Bergman-Bayards with this same marking, but neither had any German military acceptance marks. One author of an article on Bergmann-Bayards believes this marking is from a Greek police contract. Any more info?

    L.S.K. Identified by German Imperial Unit researcher Klaus Schad. In Jan Still's book CENTRAL POWERS PISTOLS Page 253 ..L.S.K.16.34 Landwher Sanitaets Kompanie Nr.16 Waffe No. 34.. Pistol was found with German manufactured Bergman Bayard Holster.. Please post the information on the Greek contract Bergman Bayards it would be of great interest to the members of NAPCA... BILL

    I'll look the article up and post the info. Does yours have any German army acceptance marks? I would think that would be a sine qua non for an issued weapon.
