In 95% condition we have a very rare 1937 Austrian built M1912 Steyr Hahn Pistol that is Nazi Police Eagle/L marked and re-barreled to 9mm Luger. In 1940-41 around 60,000 Steyr Hahn model 1912 pistols were reworked and re-chambered for the standard German 9m/m Luger cartridge. They were issued to the Nazi era German Police and are “Eagle/L” Police acceptance stamped. Most of the pistols were WW1 Austrian military pistols that bear production dates and markings from that war, but this example was actually converted using a pistol that was completely re-manufactured in 1937 and so stamped on the left trigger guard with Austrian 1937 military acceptance proof. The slide appears to be a matching numbered replacement slide and it is not unlike the pistol pictured on page 246 of Axis Pistols. . These pistols are not at all common and we might get in a couple or three a year. They are an important part of any Nazi Pistol collection, especially since they are in the standard military round. As far as M1912 Steyr Hahn Pistols are concerned this one has to be a real rarity with the 1937 Austrian acceptance proof.
