Post Krieghoff Commercial - P Code, Series 1

I've been asked if I could post some of my Kriegs on this Forum - and I'd be delighted to post a few. I'd encourage others to post short descriptions of their pieces as well - and if folks would like to post them without "attribution" to them personally - please feel free to e-mail the pictures and the descriptions, and I'd be pleased to post them for you as "anonymous". In the meantime - enjoy...!

This is a Krieghoff Commercial - Early "P" Series, which are side framed inscribed. This example rates at about 85% blues and 80% Straw. Serial number "P183", it has the early placement style "P" placement, which is place directly in line with the "183". Grips are correct for this Krieghoff variation.

5 Point Star on right side of receiver. This was the "rejection" mark, amongst others, that denotes a "Commercial". Variations are noted.

The machining of the lugs are unique to Krieghoff as compared to other manufacturers. This supports the analysis by Mr. Gibson that Krieghoff used their own manufacturing techniques as compared to Simson (and Erfurt).

Sideplate detail. Notice the serial number and LWaA2 stamps on both the plate extension and the lever. These are correct for this variation.
