An excellent, original condition Langenhan pocket pistol chambered fro 6.35 mm cartridge (.25ACP). The only markings on the left side relate to the safety. “Germany” is on top of the bolt as marked for pistols destined for export. The right side of the gun is marked with the manufacturer, caliber, and Crown/N proof marks. Black hard rubber grips, with F/L logo over a chequered field. Unmarked magazine with 8 indicator holes on the right side and unmarked, integral floorplate.
Early German WWI/interwar pocket pistol designed by Friedrich Langenhan out of Zella-Mehlis, Germany, a town better known for its production of Walther pistols.
Near excellent, with bright original rust blue. Sharp edge wear and thinning in expected areas for a gun that has seen relatively light use. Comparable condition grips. Magazine with patchy discoloration as photographed. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. A great miniature counterpart of the more frequently seen Langenhan in 7.65mm that was made from 1914-1917.
