    I just received my Radom VIS P-35 today and thought I'd share a couple pics.
    The first thing I noticed when I held the gun were the great ergonomics.
    Condition is really good for a WWII pistol. Original finish, all matching numbers, nazi markings, and the barrel has strong rifling.

    I can't wait to take it to the range. :)

    Thanks! :)
    The first 3 on my serial are G712.
    I haven't really looked into dating it by serial#, but based on it being a "grade II", I'm going to guess it was manufactured sometime between 1939 and 1941.

    Kewl, it's a little newer than the one I just picked up (G359*). If you don't mind me asking, what did you have to give for it?

    I had been looking at Randoms for awhile and had a good idea of what I wanted. I wanted a 3 lever "grade II", nazi marked, with matching #'s and a decent finish that was all original. This one was advertised on GunBroker with the holster for around $900.

    I know the holsters are supposed to make them more desirable to collectors, but I'm not a hard core collector and honestly had no desire for the holster. It was in pretty bad shape anyway, so I negotiated with the seller and he agreed to sell me the gun (less the holster) and an extra mag for $750 (shipped). From all the other ones I had been looking at, I thought that was a pretty fair price and it had everything I was looking for. :)

    Not bad, so I didn't do too badly on mine.

    Looks in great shape, unfortunately it looks like it's been refinished which may have an effect on it's value.

    I suggest maybe looking what others are selling for on GunBroker.
    This should give you a good feel for market value.

    Good luck.
