Bergmann Mars, 1903, German, 9mmB, 843, A-1878
VG+ original rust blue finish, with muzzle and sharp edge wear as one might expect from a lightly used pistol. . Comparable condition fire blue on locking block, rear sight and safety lever. Same holds true for the straw on hammer and trigger. Replacement/reworked magazine whose removal is a little sticky. Original grips, oil darkened, with blunted checkering and scattered handling marks. No suggestion of enhancement. Bright Bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. A very nice Bergmann M1903, a real find for those interested in early developmental pistols!
