CZ model 37 Finnish army, .380 Auto, #136294, § B

Starting price 70 EUR
Result:
128 EUR

Finland was known to use various international rifles and pistols for her armed forces units, as her own industry was not up to scratch before the winter war 1939/40 against the USSR. So this original Czechoslovakian service pistol (acceptance mark "J lion 37") presumably came through Germany to Finland. Here it got an owner's mark in a rounded square "SA" (Suomen Armeija) of the Finnish army. The arm is in good original condition with about 70% original finish, rubbed and spotty on the usual exposed places. without proof - interesting collector's item! condition III.
