It was manufactured by Lieferungsgemeinschaft Westthueringische Wekzueg, using makers code  “eeu” in 1943 (43). Next to this marking is the Nazi Kriegsmarine (German Navy) acceptance stamp “M III/3” with the Nazi Eagle above it. The barrels are correctly stamped with a number 4 within a circle and Eagle below, (barrel calibre / proof stamp).

Note, EEU only manufactured this model from 1943 to 1944 making and estimated 6000 before production ceased. The vast majority were lost at sea, having been issued to the German naval fleet including U-boat crews.

They are extremely scarce and highly sought after and rarely seen.

This item has come direct from storage and the action is very tight and markings are crisp.  It is was de-activated May 2023 to UK standard due to its calibre (not subject to EU spec) and as such still cocks and dry fires and is supplied with the “blue” Proof House certificate.
