    A while ago there was a magizine article about the Nazi produced 1914 for sale on Gun Broker, even showed a pic of the Nazi proof marked 1914. I went back to find it to link it, but it must have expired already.

    OK, you're referencing two different pistols again.
    The Kongsberg factory was commandeered for Nazi production in June of 1940, the pistols and parts already manufactured would be Nazi mark Norwegians.
    The production of German designated Pistole 657(n) began in late 1940.

    I think that discussing pistols built during the 40s is not germane to the question. The seller gives the following info:

    You are bidding on a slide for a 1911A1 Goverment Model manufactured by RAPP. I've never seen a 1911A1 GI slide with these type markings before. I know that all firearms sold inside of Germany must be proofed and the proof marks stamped on them but I've never seen this manufacturers name on any ther 1911A1 slide. It has a FSN (Federal Stock Number) or NSN (NATO Stock Number ) stamped on its side which should put it about 70's to 80s vintage. I believe it has never been on a pistol judging by the inside finish wear. Phosphate finish on exterior has minor wear from long storage. No internals. If you collect 1911A1 stuff this might be something to have. I've never seen another, and I was a millitary armorer for several years in the 80's
    If it has a FSN or NSN then it would be of West German manufacture. The F in FSN representing the Federal Republic of Germany.

    They didn't get the Nazi eagle stamp till '45, so how would the early '40's be the same as the '45 ?

    Is it still possible to still find a Slide Release AKA Slide Stop like the one shown in your photo?
    some years ago several smiths offered them , today i suspect it would be a one of custom , but any competent smith should be able to turn one out .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Your talking about the Beschussstempel proof mark or the Wa A84 inspection mark?

    OK, they used two stampings with the Swastika.

    I believe the confusion is on my part, I substituted Nazi for German, several posts back. You're correct, they received the Swastika late in the war, they were German marked Pistole 657(n) from 1940.

    Thank you, definitely postwar then.

    Seems as if we got off track a bit QK. Not really sure bout that slide as if is defently somewhat of a oddity.
