I recently got my hands on a beautiful Red 9. All matching parts (including the grips), the bore was excellent, and the bluing was also excellent. The holster is obviously new, and I had to use my steel picks to clean some crud off the insides. Otherwise it is pretty much perfect. I am trying to learn about the unit markings. Pictures below, but the marking is A.M.1.6 16 might represent a unit number. The obvious answer would be the XVI Army Corps, but I can’t find anything referring to A.M. Perhaps it refers to ArMeekorps, but I would have thought the initials would be A.K. C96s were often issued to artillery units. If no one knows, then can anyone point towards research materials? Or an active forum. I am happy to research it myself, but I do not know where to start. I would also like to find the manufacturing year, but that is probably hopeless.
