    I still need a Nazi marked P35 (Hi-Power) and a Canadian Ingliss Hi-Power (to represent the UK) for my "Service Pistol Display". But here is what I have so far.

    Double Stamp WW1 P08 (Luger) re-barreled for WW2 in 9mm.

    1943 ac P38 in pristine condition. This happens to be an amazing shooter. Also have matching holster and spare mag-both pristine.

    1937 Nambu Type 14. This was a gift from a good friend. His dad brought it home from Tarawa. He has the nicest collection of Japanese firearms that I have ever seen, and classified this one "junk" condition. I classify it "museum quality". But he has LOTS, and I have one. Ha.

    Radom P35 9mm. Nazi stamped and in pristine condition.

    Remington Rand 1911A1 (1943). This has a US&S slide, but is a great shooter, and is period correct.

    None of these have import marks on them, and they will be displayed in my new gun room. I know where to find a pristine, Nazi stamped Hi-Power (P35), but it has 60's vintage red backed stocks.

    The Nazi marked Radoms and FN Hi-Powers were almost exclusively issued to Waffen SS troops.

    I also have a pretty decent accumulation of the various pocket/officers pistols from WW1 and WW2 (everything carried by Axis officers in WW1 was also carried in WW2).

    Holy ****. I don't know what else to say other that that's a damn beautiful collection.

    Damn.

    "I know where to find a pristine, Nazi stamped Hi-Power (P35), but it has 60's vintage red backed stocks."

    Wouldn't it just be easier to get the P35 and look for the correct stocks?

    Now you need a Beretta M-1934 to have the major powers covered. The French pistols were not really a factor but some pristine examples can be found (never fired, dropped once).

    On the surface, Yes. However, I have been searching for the correct stocks. Tough to find. I have a friend in Germany who is helping in the search.

    If it comes to it, I may buy the P35, and then just beat the snot out of the stocks to make then look right. Ha. But the pistol is very nice.

    I know where to get a pristine M34, and a pristine M35. They may end up joining the club. Ha. It is those pesky membership dues that get in the way!
