I've seen about 6 for sale in the UK, all are imported Deacs and had the weld on the take down lever grund off (I assume to bring them to UK spec and to be uk proofed). prices have varied from £1000 to £4000, one dealer bought one of the internet and tried to resell it on Gunstar for over £1000 more than he paid the week before and claimed it was in his collection for years. I hate dealers like that, I don't have a problem with them earning a wage, but greed is another thing.
Kongsberg M1914 pistols made in 1944 are priced a lot higher because of the proof marks. There’s something about having the most iconic of American weapons with a nazi proof mark on it. But 3500 pounds is ridiculous.
Here in Belgium all years of manufacture get high prices because our law makers have decided (in there infinite wisdom) that the 11,25mm caliber is so obsolete (and thus unavailable)that we are allowed to own the Kongsberg without license or neutralization.
Here is my Kongsberg M1914 (1941) with a Colt M1911 (1916) and an Ithaca M1911A1 (1944):
What do you guys think about this "Norwegian Kongsberg KV M-1914 kaliber 11,25 m.m Colt"
Prodused in 1941.
I doubt I can get a closeup on the numbers etc..
I'll have to have a colt and a M1 Garand in my collection now :P
