Just spotted this on QXL Norway.

http://my.qxl.no/accdb/viewItem.asp?IDI=514067008

I have heard that the German forces used these pistols, but this is the first one I've ever seen for sale anywhere. Just the thing for your Skijäger impression (unfortunately he won't send it abroad though!).

Has anyone here ever seen one of these before?

Regards

Interesting!

It has an extended slide release of a pattern I've not seen before. Much easier to reach with a short thumb, or maybe with gloved hands?

Does anyone know if this was specific to a Norwegian contract, or an aftermarket accessory?

Mine is dated 1942 i think they all have this type of slide release and realy have nothing to do with skijager they were just pistols procured by the heereswaffenampt (about 8000 of them )and put into service strangly you can find 1941 1942 1945 dated ones but not 43 or 44 ones

The '.45 1911 from Norway' is formally titled the 'Kongsberg Vapfenfabrikk Model M/1914'. It is manufactured in Norway, under licence from Colt. According to the Standard Catalog of Military Firearms, the model was produced from 1917 to 1947. As mentioned above, models are to be found stamped 1940, 1941, 1942 and then 1945. A final batch was produced in 1947. Great care should be exercised when purchasing any Waffenamt stamped models, and the buyer should research the serial number to ensure year of manufacture is correct - fakes seem to abound.

Hope the above is of some use to fellow collectors.
