    if you look at the bussiness end of the hammer mine has a squared off cap at the end and is quiet distintive... yours smoothly tapers off at 45 at the back of the breach

    Hi HVK,

    Your close mate, but not right... The pistol is a Hungarian Frommer Pisztoly 29 Minta M-29 (Model 1929). It's a 9mm 7 shot auto produced only for the military, whereas the M-37 was 7.65mm and used by the police, amongst other civil services.

    Below is firstly, a M-29, and secondly, a M-37. Note the different rear frame/slide and make your own decision, they are markedly different.

    Regards, Ned.
