...and still more...

Don't know what the previous issues were but the site is working as well as it use to.
I guess I'm going to have to start spending more time here with y'all like I use to! - Bill

The top pic in this series shows machining chips that I found in the upper slide area.
The goldish coloring is the lighting, all the chips are silver or blued.
I honestly believe that I was the first person ever to disassemble the pistol to that point since it was made 73 years ago! - Bill

Sorry I forgot to include the pics of the barrel markings and this unusual stamp underneath the hammer on the frame.
I'm not sure what that marking is as I have never seen one before and I can't find any info on it. - Bill

The marking on the frame reminds me of the bug stamping used on Mauser made lugers from before WWI.
I know by the Weinmar era that stamping wasn't in use anymore.

Very nice! Have one just like it, but with a bit more wear.
