I've had the piece for numbers of years without doing anything else but use it now an then. One day I came across a web page about Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk (Kongsberg Arms Factory) which led me to a book about the same factory. I then contacted the author of the book and bought one. Then things happened fast, they could tell me ( which where stated in the book to) that this particular gun where:
Made in 1923 at Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk in Norway
Pressure tested and function tested August 21 1923
Dissembled and parts tested September 23 1923
Function tested October 5 1923
Final test and check October 21 which stated the calibre to 11.27 mm
Sent from factory October 25 1923
Checked at Infantry Regiment III (IR 3) April 9. 1940 (this year Norway where invaded by Germany 1940-1945)
Last inspection by Norwegian Forces some day during 1939
Stamp on rightside of slide is (TE) & 1923
TE is Premier Second Lieutenant Einar Tobiassen
Stamp top of slide (A) Hjalmar Anderson who is the person at the factory which sight adjusted and controlled the accuracy.
Stamp left side of slide KV(Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk) & (King Haakon .7(1922-1940))
The barrel are marked (B)
All parts are marked and stamped with its serial number.
My gun is "checked " up and parts have been replaced. (Have them in the vault). Therefore, it goes like a dream - excellent precision an functionality.
I'm very happy with the gun.
Sorry bout missing photos, I did something wrong during upload of the new ones.
