Hi,

The interesting bit about the sear safety holes is that these modifications were made to police pistols by police arsenals, as far as I know.

Basically, this would make it very questionable for those parts to have originated from DWM leftovers, being reused by Krieghoff.

So I think the 9mm receiver at least raises some questions, which is funny, because it would have been more logical when the .30 receiver had the police sear safety hole.

It's a very interesting combination and being a commercial version doesn't make research easier. Because on the commercial market, basically, everything can and will be done. No tight military contract limitations.

Are both Krieghoff toggle marks identical?
