The left-side of the frame is stamped with "MR" at the front of the trigger guard and stamped with the eagle over "WaA140" and the Eagle over Swastika above the trigger (see photos).
The gun has standard target sights with a 5" barrel. The bore is black and pitted, but still retains good rifling. The right-side of the barrel at the breech-end is stamped with the serial number and Eagle over Swastika (see photos). The left-side of the barrel at the breech-end is stamped with the eagle over "WaA140 in two spots and the left-side of the barrel lug is stamped with what appears to be a square with an unknown symbol inside.

The gun has "rough" machining marks typically found on military era weapons. There is some pitting on the frame and slide with the heaviest pitting being on the sides of the grip frame, under the grips. Blue is thinning on the gun, but there is still about 40-50% blue present. The bottom of the frame and front and rear sides of the grip have turned patina. The bottom of the grip frame is also proof marked and stamped (see photos). The gun has what appears to be the original walnut checkered grips. The grips appear to have been refinished, but overall the grips are in good condition with no cracks. The magazine appears to be original and is stamped with the eagle over "WaA140" on the back rear-side at the bottom (see photos).
Overall this gun is in very good condition mechanically and good in appearance. Serial #192809. STK. #11049.
