Forthcoming book on
Bergmann pistols.... I need numbers on actual pistols, please inform me of model, caliber, factory no., regimental markings, slot for stock, barrel length and everything unusual, sett trigger or anything else. If you know your pistol's history, or original user, please note that too.

For model designation, see Gun Digest 1973 or send me a photo. Danish, Spanish military Bergmann-Bayards always have two numbers. I don't record ownership but would like to contact you if I need additional information or a photo. I have around 300 numbers and have determined the number blocks for most of the models and deliveries.
