Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp. There is no erosion in the bore.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 90% of its metal finish. The front edge of the barrel and barrel band, the top of the front sight and the front edges of the square part of the barrel show surface loss. The barrel and frame show a few scattered handling marks. The right front edge and right lower edge of the frame show surface loss, and the front and back straps show thinning. The side of the takedown lever and the serrations on the safety and the back edges of the slide show surface loss. The grip screw heads show marks of a screwdriver but are still sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this handgun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This pistol comes with one magazine and a holster. The magazine is blued with surface loss on the edges. It is in overall Excellent condition. The holster is a brown leather period holster with cleaning rod and magazine loading tool. It has separate pouches: one on the front (forward) edge for a magazine, one on the outside surface for the cleaning rod, and one under the top cover for the magazine tool. The holster has a top cover with a leather hinge, and is retained by a strap riveted to its outside surface and held by a buckle rived to the outside of the holster. The outside surface of the top cover is marked with a boxed “SA”, and the rear of the holster has 2 one inch wide belt loops. The leather stitching is all intact and there are no cracks in the leather except for small surface cracks in the retaining strap. The magazine pouch and the cleaning rod pouch show surface loss. Otherwise, the holster only shows light handling marks. The steel buckle shows surface loss and surface erosion. The brass rivets show minor tarnish with verdigris around the bases. Overall, the holster is in Fine condition. The cleaning rod has a finger loop at the top and a slot for a patch at the bottom. Both the rod and the magazine loading tool are blued, and both show thinning. Both are in Excellent condition.

Our Assessment: This is an interesting looking pistol with many Luger similarities. The Series 4 pistols were made after WWII and after VKT changed its name to Valmet, with parts left over from WWII production stocks. They were intended for commercial sales. One major difference between the Series 3 and 4 pistols was the markings on the top flat of the barrel denoting the name change. This pistol is in great condition and with matching numbers. Please see http://www.jaegerplatoon.net/PISTOLS1.htm for more detail than we could ever include here. Complete with holster and all the necessary accessories, this pistol should have high interest by WWII collectors and collectors of Finnish firearms.
