The left side of the slide is marked with the manufacturer and “UNIQUE” trademark in addition to the caliber and 9 shot magazine capacity. Full serial number on the right side of the frame, along with the Waffamt acceptance E/WaAD20. Matching numbered slide and barrel. Fitted with black plastic logoed grips, and correct, unmarked magazine. Complete with custom carrying/presentation case, lined in purple velvet, with a brass identification plaque.
Scarce French Unique Kriegsmodell Model 17 as made for the WWII German military, an improved modification of the Model 17, this variation with an external hammer.
Excellent, retaining most of the bright original salt blue finish. Sharp edge wear as one might expect from a slightly used service pistol. Comparable condition grips and magazine. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. Excellent case as photographed. An extremely nice, no excuse, French manufactured German Army pistol of WWII!
