I think they were also used as officers sidearms during the war. Clean it well and lube it before you shoot it.

What scares me about this thread is that Robo may have freaking ESP - that's a chilling thought...

Google "Ortgies" for a lot of info on these neat little pistols. Usually good shooters
they are .32 auto.

From a mechanical outlook they are entirely "fitted" - no pins used anywhere in
the gun.

Considering the age, you may want to have someone check it out before shooting.

Welcome to the forum. We have a "classified" section where this post should be. I don't know if your low number of posts will allow that.

May I suggest that you also look at posting on some of the gun auction sites?
A pawn shop may also buy it from you.

The grip safety is not a major issue for most folks. The modern Springfield XD retains that feature.
