    This gun was brought back from Germany during WWII. My brother in-laws great aunts brother brought it back. I have tore it apart and can't find any numbers, letters or symbols on it. Every one I've talked to has no idea what it is any help would be appreciated. Thanks

      Only the United States pushes having a serial number. Lots of other countries do not. Even so, an undocumented gun is illegal but, no big deal unless you go around shooting people.

      This gun is very well made he has taken it to 4 different gun dealers that don't know any thing about it. But they all want buy it lol.

      I've gone thru my 1957 Small Arms Of the World which shows most WWII guns. I can't find it but the grip of the French 1935-A seem similar but design of trigger & slide are different. It has Belgie characteristics via Browning but my intuition says French.
      Although I'm not current on U.S. laws, I don't believe it is illegal to own a gun without a serial # that was produced that way unless you are registering it & they would require that an ID # be stamped on it (possibly lowering any collector's value).

      I agree with Blunder. I'm pretty sure it's not illegal to own an unmarked firearm (no manufacturer and/or serial). The legal onus would be on the manufacturer or importer to apply the markings. A WWII bring back of course would not be subject, although I bet it would be interesting to try to register it in some locales.
      If you find out more about this odd pistol, please update us.

      So now we know. Sure had me stumped.
    8. Bluegill85, 7 years ago
      Sorry for the late response I've been very busy lately. I've googled Every thing I still haven't seen the gun any where. Look at the safety on top of the slide I haven't seen that safety any where I'm still stumped .

      I think you can register on auction arms and join the discussion forums for free. Their actual site is they also have links to other sites to help research weapons of all types. I forget how much it cost to buy and sell but I found it worth the price on just one weapon I needed to research and sell.
