I got a call last night from a guy who found a pistol in his yard. He wanted to know what it might be and had taken it down to the local gun store. They told him to call me. I have no idea, from his description. I'm hoping he will bring it over for inspection. This is what he described: Small pocket pistol, "looks like a .25cal auto". He says cal. is 7.63/.30mauser. Pistol is marked "Made in West Germany". Has a 67 on the frame, not sure where he said. From what I know, and researched the handguns made in .30mauser- 7.62X25-7.63 are large. I keep thinking is is 7.65 or .32auto, but he said no. Also, I'm guessing the 67 is year of production, but I can't believe anyone was still making a 7.63 cal auto in 67'. Any ideas what he has? guns762

I would guess it is between 1950-1988. West Germany's name wasn't adopted for a while after WW2. If it doesn't have a name, it is probably a 2nd rate manufacturer. Have you checked Arminus(sp?)? I think FIE was another manufacturer in that period.
