Jim, it's a Rheinmetall .32 made sometime in the mid 20s to 30s. I acquired one and the cocking indicator pin is missing. I'd like to see one so I can copy it. Basically, it is a simple lathe turning.
The Rheinmetall is a very interesting pistol. The whole back end of the slide screws off to separate from the front. Once the two halves of the slide are separated, the breechface unscrews for access to the firing pin. Typical German over-engineering. LOL!
In principal it vaguely resembles the 1910 Browning, but actually looks more like an Ortgies.
