    The 1941 is a very scarce gun. Imagine if it hadn't been plated?

    Did you ever get the opportunity to take detailed pictures of that one? If I recall, it had some major bling.

    It surely fell out of German control at the very least by war's end. It was marked by the British with a Nitro Proof when it was released for civilian sale.

    Most collectors would opt to find a new grip, since there is no picture backing to the plexiglass. So, figure around $100 for that, and some folks won't bother with a gun which needs something. ...

    Just to add to the above observations, it seems to be in very good condition and in original finish. It will retain its value best if allowed to retain its original finish. Thanks for the pictures.

    At least they used all original parts to make the repair. Shouldn't affect your overall resale value too greatly.
