serial #A3430, 9mm, 4 3/4" barrel with a good bore showing moderate frosting, light oxidation and strong rifling throughout. This is a very fine early Type I three lever slotted pistol and retains about 88% original bright blue showing moderate high edge wear, gripstraps toning to gray patina, some light freckling, scratches and a couple tiny pinprick pits here and there. The hammer, trigger and slide stop have a nice pale plum-fire blue color from heat treatment. The black checkered plastic "FB / VIS" grips remain in near excellent condition with just a few tiny chips, small dings and handling marks. All of the serialized parts are matching and the pistol is appropriately marked with "(Eagle) / WaA77", "P.35(P.)" and "(Eagle) / 623" on the left side of the slide along with Radom factory inspection marks on the right side frame. This pistol includes two original magazines both with Waffenamt-marked floorplates showing some light operational wear as well as an original brown leather flap holster bnz-coded and 1944-dated. The holster remains in very good plus condition showing some scattered scratches, minor scuffs, light staining and intact stitching throughout. Overall a wonderful early occupation P.35 pistol rig.
