According to the Jaeger Platoon website, referencing Series 3 pistols: “This production series numbered bit more than 2,000 pistols. This time production had been simplified by leaving unmachined some less vital details. These included details originally included for making pistol lighter and look better. The wartime production part of this series had serial numbers around 3700 – 5800 and were almost all delivered in spring of 1944.” This standard configuration Series 3 military Lahti has a 4.75” barrel having drift adjustable front sight and fixed rear sight. “VKT” and “L-35” marked on top of slide surmounting boxed “SA”. Full matching serial numbers on left side of barrel extension, left side of frame and on top of bolt. Correct brown mottled plastic grips each molded with the VKT logo and secured with a single screw. Discrete import markings. Finnish Lahti magazine with military SA marking.
Scarce late variation, Series 3, military L-35 Lahti, one of the last to have been assembled circa 1944-45, with original SA marked magazines.
Near excellent original blue with holster wear and grip strap wear as one might expect from moderate but careful use. No discernible pitting. Excellent original grips having no splits or discernible losses. Bright bore with strong rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. Comparable condition magazine. One of the scarcer Finnish military Lahti pistols, one of the last to have been delivered in 1944. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
