Default identify this firearm please

Hey all my father has a handgun that he cant identify. Sorry for the crappy pics. It says p. Mod 37, kal 7,65 on the slide. Also says jhv 41 towards the rear of the slide. It also has matching serial numbers on the frame, slide, and barrel. He is trying to find out if he can shoot .32 acp out of it. Also looking for a value. Thanks all.

It looks like a frommer model 37. 7,65 is the german variant of 32 acp. It has the manual safety so that's the German model that was used during WW2. The jhv # is the date stamp. Hopefully this will point you in the right direction.

This is the best info I could find for you. Interesting thing though...if I'm not mistaken Frommer is the company that became the modern day sig sauer.

Default Sorry to be a know it all...

SIG - Sauer, the current manufacturer is the result of the combined effort of two firearms firms.

J. P. Sauer & sohn has been a German firearms manufacturer since 1751. They still manufacture high quality rifles on their own.

Swiss Arms AG, a current independent company, used to be SIG (Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft) Arms AG in Switzerland.

They've been working in concert on pistols since the 1970s. To my knowledge, Frommer has nothing to do with either of the two companies or the combine.
