Nice acquisition. Some in these serial range went to Argentina, if my memory serves. Better get out and shoot it before the snow comes to Maine - of course winter gloves will also stop hammer bite.
Have you posted photos of yours before? I don't remembed seeing it, but I would certainly like to!I have a 1932 Govt. Model with the original box. The condition is superb, so I don't shoot it. Matter of fact, I don't even handle it that often.
Yet, it's one of my most prized hand guns.
Congrats! That's a really nice Govt. Model.
I believe if you get "bitten" by ANY handgun, you're holding it wrong!OP that's nice government model you got enjoy shooting it. To prevent hammer bite try putting on a small square band aid on that spot before you start shooting. I found by doing that my skin did not get cut but once in a while I felt a minor sting.

I just read the new article in The Rampant Colt about Von Lengerke & Antione! What a great history lesson on the 1920's & '30's!Nice work Lou. Now you need a letter in the outside chance it shipped to P. Von Frantzius, Louis Scaramuzzo or Von Lengerke and Antoine in Chicago.
...or perhaps Dakins Sporting goods in Bangor?
