Bergmann Mars 1903, mid-production, matching magazine, in 9mmBB, forerunner to the much more common to the M1910 and M1910-21
VG+ original rust blue finish with sharp edge wear as one would expect from a pistol that has seen mild/moderate use. Comparable condition fire blue on locking block, rear sight and safety lever. Same holds for the straw on hammer and trigger. Sides of magazine have been polished, through the blue, to allow a smoother fit in the pistol. Grips with staining and scattered handling marks. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. An attractive Bergmann M1903, all matching and with an excellent bore. A real find for those interested in early developmental pistols!
