Radom Model 35 Serial Numbers

Yes, that is a decocker, which is designed to allow the hammer to be lowered in safety, but that lever that looks like the safety of a Model 1911 is not a safety; it merely locks the slide back for disassembly. Now that gun. The Radom slide marking is the same as used in most German production, but the lettering is larger and is of a different font. Note that the original markings are shallow and easily removed along with the slide acceptance WaA 77 markings normally present.
I think that was done in this case. Then the legend was added back (perhaps hand stamped using a jig) and the rather improbable name added using the same stamp set. The eagle could have been engraved or etched, I think the latter. I think it is a fake, although it is certainly be a bold and innovative one. I would want to see a lot of documentary evidence as to the identity of the supposed owner/recipient, evidence of comparable guns, etc. Even if it were genuine, it would not be especially valuable. There were, unfortunately, millions of SS members, and thousands had their names put on guns.
Of course, in this case, the gun was state property, accepted by the Army, and not something an SS member would normally play with. Again, I think it is a fake. That gun seems to be in the L serial numbers of the first alphabet series, probably made in 1941. (Apparently there was no 'L' in the second alphabet series - the war ended before 'L' was reached.) The WaffenAmt markings are normal, along with the marking of the German designation of the pistol, P.35(p); the small 'p' stands for Polnisch, the German word for Polish.
Taking another look at that fake 'Hitler' Radom, I note that the second line is pantographed, yet another strike against authenticity.
