    Shayne... Thanks. Could you post some pictures? First DWM/41 I have heard of. Could be a good "learning" pistol.

    Jeff.... I do not recall having that one and suspect it may have come from Jan's data. Perhaps he might join in and can shed some light here. Thanks for posting.

    See page 65 Third Reich Lugers, (published 1988). Under: 1940-- 42 code Chacteristics: “About 2% have black plastic grips while a very few have Krieghoff type coarse checkered brown plastic grips.

    Jan/Jeff.... Added the new number to the list with note about 99xxh. I found the number on some notes from 2012 but do not really recall where it came from. My guess is that it is probably the same pistol. Tough getting good help. Thanks to all for the input

    Hi Dave,

    I just won this pair on eBay...will have to see if they are real HK brown grips or not when I have them home in a few days.

    I placed a low bid assuming they might be nicely made "repros" which I like and can always use. Won the auction for $ 52.

    But the photos from eBay do look a bit more promising.

    Question : Should I expect the holes to be threaded ?

    Pete.... I am pretty sure the following are correct. Not sure that they were "threaded" in the sense of someone tapping a hole. They did use some type of tool to extract them from the molds but I am not sure what that looked like but would love to see an example. I have gotten to know one of the young men that imports them from Russia and he told me once that the "next generation" will be bakelite and pass the "hot pin" and famous Ebbink castanets tests. He reads this Forum and the books...... and so it goes.....

    Thanks Dave for your posting.

    Will let you know when I get this pair home.


    BTW...once the repros get that good, we can just be blissfully ignorant

    Dave,

    Got the grips home. They are a very nice repro pair...so have moved them to my shooter safe.

    Well made, fit 3-4 guns perfectly from different eras, made of a lighter weight thermoplastic. No fibers in the resin.

    All four holes in the back of the grips are fully threaded and take the grip screw threads.

    They go "tick-a-tee-tick" and not "clack-a-tee-clack" when you rap them on a table top or against each other.
