1935A German marked pistol + holster

A 1935 A (German marked) French pistol with the French holster (very rare to find the holster too) that goes with it. The vet I got it from had the original ammo still in the mag. The mags have the correct blank bottoms.
Thanks for looking,
Joe

A have a couple of the 1935A pistols, none of them German marked. They are fun to shoot, provided ammo can be found/made. It is one of my favorite handguns.

The holster is indeed rare, I've seen a minty one go for as much as the gun itself. Collectors in France have spent $200 or more for them. I've yet to find one myself in decent shape.

I think that is one of the best feeling pistols I have ever seen. I wish they had made it in 9mm P. though it might have had to be beefed up a bit. The SIG 210 is much the same (Petter) design, but is a lot bigger pistol.

The ammo is based somewhat on that for the Pedersen device. The cases are the same, but the French ammo has a longer bullet and won't fit in the PD magazine.
