    Hard to be hurt at that price. IMHO, the pistol is worth the $275 with the mags easy. The holster is icing on the cake. Neat little pistols.

    Typically, the pistol with mags and holster go for $300+. Depending on the condition and "correctness" of the holster, the holster alone might be worth $100. You got it for a good price.

    Is there any definitive proof what exactly the (H) mark means? I have read it stands for Heer (Army) but it was on the internet ;^)

    That's what I've heard....Denny at Empire Arms puts a premium on (H) marked pistols.
    Thanks,

    eastbank, Great deal. That holster may be worth the whole price paid depending on the model. Don't make too much of the (H) marking. That is very common. No one knows just what that marking means as no records show just why it was there. Common sense does suggest the Heer (Army) meaning, however, and I agree with that assessment. What is nice is how few 1922 pistols actually carry the WaA140 marked magazines. I'm not sure I've actually seen that stamping on the 1922 magazine but believe they are present. Can you post an image of just the magazine with the stamp? Nice catch. Dan P.

    I always assumed the "H" in circle on the 1922 had the same meaning as the "H" on a Hi Power-- Belgian Army property.

    Does it not?

    Cool Nice Find!

    Hello EastBank. Nice find there! I just got one myself! Mine only came with a holster though. Congrats on your find!

    Agreed, nothing special or uncommon about the H marking. Again, nobody knows what it signifies.

    Turkish contract pistols are very uncommon. Too bad the barrel appears to have been swapped out.

    Yes, alas it's how it came to me. If only I had the original barrel.
