Femaru M37 help/info

well, I snagged one of these at a local gun shop for $100 as well as a RG .22 revolver for $10 (he said i can have it if i fix it, needed deep cleaned)

anyways, i know the M37 was a favorite among the Luftwaffe, but mine does not have any German proof markings. All it has is a very faint coat of arms looking stamp on the trigger guard.

Also, mine is a .380 acp, rather than the normal .32 auto. The hand grips that came with it are cheap white plastic. the magazine does have the pinkey grip (?) but its not original. and its missing the slide catch.

other than all that, it just needs to be re-blued and real hand grips. and the gun shop has a spare mag or 2 to go with it for $20

The gun is in very good condition, why would you want to reblue it?
I believe the magazine is original.
If there are no German markings, the gun was probably Hungarian issue.

it functions well, but it's kind of a nasty rust brown. there is no actual blueing on it

got one myself- the .380 's were hungarian issue, good little shooter, but mags were expensive at around 60 bucks for factory originals in good condition, and the aftermarket ones were true crap......I keep mine around for its history, and thats about it......try numrich for parts.....
