Historical and well documented Steyr Hahn M1912, made and proofed for the Austrian military in 1919 as reflected by the slide legend. The gun was later reworked in 1930 as noted by the overstamp on the right side of the upper trigger guard web. Further revision for issue to the Nazi Police is reflected by the “08” on the left side of the slide along with the Eagle/N on the left side of the frame and Eagle/L on the right side of the frame. Complete with original flapped holster with pocket for stripper clips (two included, no ammo) and original capture document dated “5 August 1945”, authorizing Pfc Martin A. Adler to retain this pistol, cited by serial number, as his personal property.
Fascinating Steyr Hahn, M1912, 9mmP, Austrian Military, reworked for Nazi Police, holster, capture paper.
VG original finish with thinning and holster wear as carefully photographed. Appropriate fading of strawed parts and comparable condition grips, still with sharp checkering and only a few handling marks. Mirror bright bore. Perfect Manual mechanics. The holster is oil stained with supple leather and intact stitching. The snap from the flap having pulled a hole in the ammo pouch. VG capture paper with usual folds and stains, edge losses and a few tears along the folds. An extremely interesting and well documented pistol that should appeal to any collector of Austrian and WWII pistols.
