    Steyr-Hahn 9mm para conversion? That is a very odd and fascinating thing, do you have details?

    Do be careful with the Steyr Hahn. There are reports of wear and misfit repair parts letting them fire when the safety is disengaged.

    The S&W is a .38 Hand Ejector Military & Police. I don't have the book to pin down the age closely but it looks like pre WW II at least. The grips are replacements.

    Did you get any stripper clips with that Steyr, or do you have to load it cartridge-by-cartridge?

    I see from the Wiki article that the machine pistol version had an extended magazine, but apparently that was not a detachable mag either.

    On the S&W... THE book says...

    1915-1942 241704-700000

    At 296xxx, a manufacture date in the teens is very likely.

    From 06-09 they averaged better than 24,000 per year. 09-15 they averaged near 17,000 per year. 17k over 3 years would put 1918 in the 292k range. If production was ramped up for the war, it's thouroghly possible that gun could've been manufactured in 1917 or 1918. Making it a WWI production gun.

    No stripper clips. Haven't shot it yet, but guess I'll have to load them one by one.

    Ya, that screwdriver came with my Combat Masterpiece. Wish I still had the gun.
