    Default Swedish 'LAHTI' 'Danish Brigade' Pistol

    Enjoy this Swedish version of the 'LAHTI' pistol.. Known in Swedish service as the M-40 & a scarce box of Swedish M-39b 9mm Ammo....
    In 1945 the Danish Brigade which was in exile in Sweden left to go back to Denmark they were armed with 1000 Swedish M-40 pistols, all these pistols carried Swedish Army acceptance stamps of SS for Inspector Captian Sten Stenmo.. After WW2 these pistols were given to the Danish police and marked Rplt. (RIGSPOLITI)..:::As my pistol is marked:::... After the war additional batchs of M-40 pistols were delievered to the Danish police; approx. 10,000, these had a 'D' prefix in the serial number for Denmark, and too were marked Rplt...Again enjoy this well made and well traveled pistol...BILL

    Very nice, I'm surprised someone hasn't called these rarely encountered guns "SS" pistols
