The price isn't particularly out of line at this point, but we'll see what it's fetching in a couple of weeks.

I am up too late, as usual... What makes it Franken?

I'd say the quality of the engraving is quite good and represents a pant-load of work. Anyone familiar with what this style/motif might be called?

This Feuer business is new to me, so I hope someone can make a more informed call on why it's there. It means "fire," of course, but you can see that the safety bar is actually making the gun Gesichert with the lever in this position. ("Knock-knock!" "Who's there?" "Max." "Max who?" "Max No Sense.")
