I recently came across one of these hand guns when my girlfriends grand-father passed away. Supposedly the grand-father procured the weapon when escorting or taking an officer into custody in WWII.
I am looking for any information regarding this gun, and for possible appraisal (though I don't believe the family has plans to sell it). I am also looking for a basic operation, and disassembly instructions as it needs a little cleaning.
The gun came with two clips, one I think may actually be for a .22 hand gun, and the other with I believe is the correctly clip, has been damaged.
I believe the gun model number is D.R.G.M. 625263-633251, a possible serial number of 18765. And some kind of machine stamping on the handle - 27.A.2.2. which from other posts seem to be the company or division the gun was assigned to.
I found this site:
That states the 27. in the machine stamp stands for:
"27 WW-II German ordnance code assigned to B. Geipel GmbH, Waffenfabrik Erma, Erfurt, Germany.
27 WW-II German ordnance code assigned to Feinmachanische Werke GmbH, Erfert, Germany." but I'm not sure what this means
Here are the links that came back when I searched your site:
And also basic google search information:
