    Very nice. I have ac45 #9621b. Ours were made pretty close. Mine has the same mag, but my mag is one that I simply put with it. Mine does not have a cog hammer, but a "normal" one. Mine has an FNH made barrel, like yours and mine has reddish colored grips like yours.

    I love the red bakelite grips on these, so much nicer looking.
    Wish I had never sold my BYF44 P08, need to find another to replace it now.
    Nice pistol Hambone.

    Hambone,
    Very nice indeed. fnh barrel, cog hammer, lots of small parts in the white, even the rear site. What are the markings on the mag body?

    Thanks MJ. The small parts are phosphated. The mag body is a late, rough, phosphate follower with jvd and WaA/706 and e/359 inspections. The spine of the mag is shown in the last pic and the phosphate follower can be seen as well. It came from the factory like that. This is the first pistol I've had that had spider / insect cocoons in the inside of the grips ;) I doubt it had ever been wiped with oil since WW2 and I almost didn't clean off the air rust or wipe it.
