Did you get a chance to check the manufacturing date for this serial number yet?

More Questions:
  • When was this gun manufactured? (Everyone has to ask this one!)
  • What is the meaning of the engraving “R. Bödecker Hamburg.”?  Is this a personal name?  A sales agent name?  A police agency name?
  • Is this the correct magazine for this gun?  It is a VERY tight fit.  But, it activates/releases slide hold-open correctly.
  • Gun fires but will not extract cases. Cases get stuck in barrel about half-way out; must be driven out with dowel.  Is magazine possibly blocking cases from extraction?  Is there some other cause for stuck cases?  Anyone else have similar problem?
More photos to follow.

  • Cocking indicator: Separate piece from the firing pin; does not show unless cocked; protrudes significantly when cocked
  • Magazine: (may be wrong style) Machined follower; oversized floorplate
  • Magazine safety: Yes - gun will not fire without magazine inserted
  • Magazine release: Machined steel with transverse triangle-cut grooves
  • Extractor: 1.67"long (42.5mm); uniform width
  • Ejector: Appears to have ejector with slide-hold mechanism
  • Slide hold-open mechanism: Yes
