    Default WWII Vis 35 Radom - Type 1 Three Lever Slotted

    Picked this up on one of my trips out to visit family in OH, guy had it on armslist our in the middle of farmland. Had a mismatched nickeled slide stop when I got it but found a nice original slide stop for a reasonable price and picked it up, bluing matches perfectly. Disassembled and it all matches except for the barrel (knew barrel didnít match when I bought it). Have always wanted one of these early Radoms, shouldíve probably passed but the price was decent and it was there. I will try to get some additional pictures posted as well, just took a quick one before I put her into the safe. Has a ďVĒ marked magazine but no waffenampt, from my research still an original magazine.

    Looks like a nice Vis 35. One of these is on my short list for sure.
    Will keep a watch for more photos.

    Congrats

    Thanks for the feedback! Will get more pictures in a week or two. After replacing the slide stop Iím into it for $800, with the mismatched barrel still think thatís a fair place? A little new to the firearms collecting so trying to pin whatís ďfairĒ is a moving target (no pun intended). Being an earlier slotted version thought Iíd take a chance.

    Very nice, the best of the 9mm German pistols IMO. The grips look odd but maybe screw driver issue??

    I didnít fully screw down the grips after the picture as I still needed to pull it apart and clean the whole piece. I would concur itís a very well made gun, great feel to it. Partial to the hi power but the Radom fits the hand like a glove.

    Fine pistols to be sure. One of the first auto pistols I ever bought was a nice H-bloc (first series) example with original holster and spare magazine. Picked it up at the Great Western Show about 1975, for $75.00, which was a very fair price at the time. This ultimately lead to me owning about 17 P35s, before I sold them off in 1981...the proceeds of which became the down payment for a home. Most of them are pictured in Bob Berger's red-cover "RADOM PISTOLS" booklet. Still have the 1939 Polish Eagle I had back then, which I purchased back from another owner a decade later, and a first series D-bloc (non-slotted).
