Pre - War Security Service / Private Purchase
The Model 1930 was an update of the models of 1913,26,29 and was produced concurrently with the Behoerden Model.
In the 1928-1929 time period the Model 1913 design was improved. The
new gun was named the Model 1930. The internal design of the lockwork
remains the same as on the Model 1913. The grip has a coil spring (instead
of the earlier flat spring) at the rear to tension the sear and magazine
release. The grip is reshaped to be more ergonomic and fit the hand better.
The magazine latch is redesigned to be pushed to the rear to release the
magazine. This also required the magazine to be redesigned, and so the
Model 1913 magazine cannot be used in the Model 1930. The slide holdopen
mechanism of the last variation of the 1913 and the 1926 Export model
is retained, though the trigger is redesigned so that it does not sit
in the back of the trigger guard when the gun is uncocked.
They were widely used by the Dutch Military, and the Dutch Navy and Police as well, however the largest user was the Nazi Police.
This is a top example of a very well made and designed pistol that saw significant service during the Second World War era
