Our Assessment: This is a very unique pistol that is fired in single action by first squeezing the grip to cock the hammer. It is in fantastic condition and looks as though it was fired once, cleaned, and then put back in the box. It was built with typical German reliability and all steel construction, and should be of interest to collectors of modern handguns, as this model was only made for four years. If you aren’t a collector, but simply want a firearm you can carry that is simple to use and with a nice smooth single action trigger pull, then this pistol will fill the bill.
