Cool find from my local gun store. Happy to have it.

Any information about that ring on the bottom of the frame would be cool. I havent seen any other model 4s online with it.

Anyone else have one with a scrubbed and restamped serial number?

Hi teelau. The ring looks to me like a home modification, never seen such a details on a production model. The scrubbed off serial No's to me look like it's identity was being hidden possibly not for the best of reasons!

Apparently they were scrubbed and restamped upon entry into the US as a bring back. I dont imagine my ffl would sell me a questionable gun haha.

Welcome to the forum teelau. It looks like your Model 4 is a variation 6. This was the final version before production ended around 1928/29.

Fourth variation would have seven slide serrations instead of sixteen.

Fourth variation would read "Zella-St.Blasii" or " Zella-Mehlis I" instead of "Zella-Mehlis (Thur.)".

Fifth variation has a more rounder and less rectangular ejection port. This last point may be open to interpretation. Someone with more knowledge than me may classify yours as sixth variation.

Have you shot it yet ?
