In 98% MINT CRISP Condition, We have a very scarce early Mauser 1914/34 Transition Model Pistol that is made much more desirable due to the fact that it bears the property marking of the Deutshe Reichbahn Dienst, the Security service of the Nazi German Railway System. This is a mint sharp example with a mint bore and almost all of the fire blue still intact on the small parts, making for an extremely attractive pocket pistol.
The Wartime reputation of the Reichsbahn and especially its security apparatus is rather notorious, aside from it’s main duties of guarding the railway system and its property from partisan attacks and providing security screening of the passengers, they were complicit in the transport of Jews and others to the concentration camps and participated in guarding and loading these people onto the trains and preventing escape during transport. This adds to the historic significance of this pistol and the role it likely played during the war. DR marked weapons are extremely scarce and are rarely offered for sale.
