    Thanks everyone for the information. Glad i learned more about the gun, although I am a little bummed out now because im kinda hesitant to shoot it after learning its kinda rare. Redhat, did the guy who looked at yours put any kind of value on it? I definately am not interested in selling mine but curious as to what its worth. Mine is also what i would consider to be in great shape. Thanks again for the help!

    Robjams,

    Don't know what RedHat has been told, but I've seen these guns priced in the range of $750 - $1500 depending on condition of course. The pre-war versions are astronomical. I also have no intention of selling mine, but I've got a new spring set for it (see earlier posts for spring info) and I will continue to shoot it occasionally. If it has lasted over 60 years and remained in the condition it is in, it can stand the few times I will shoot it. In my advancing age, I've about come to the conclusion that all the things we've collected give little joy if we don't get them out and use them as they were intended to be used. On the other hand, I probably won't be out shooting +P+ ammunition in it... keep it within the integrity window.

    Just found this... this link is from a German auction house. Go there to have a look at an excellent pre-war Vis P35. Note the final bid of 1700 euros. Multiply by 1.36 to get US$... that's about $2300 and I reckon that's cheap... but its still in Germany. Necessary to get it back to the US with all requisit redtape.

    He told me that if I was to put it on GunBroker it would bring $1,100+. I'm going to keep mine for a while. You can shoot it without losing value as long as it is not in a New unfired condition. Just keep it clean and oiled after firing it.

    Thats great news about the values of the gun. You guys make a good point. Since i have no intentions of selling the gun, I do think i'll continue to shoot it occasionally. This should probably start another thread, but i also have an m1 carbine made by general motors that came from grandad that i shoot occasionally as well. Great firing rifle!

    Vis P35

    Here's an anomoly.. or something like that. If you look at the German auction site I sent yesterday and search for "Radom", it comes back with half a dozen or so guns. There is a Dxxx SN WITHOUT the takedown catch and an Lxxx SN WITH the takedown catch. Mine is E4xxx and HAS the takedown catch and slot. They also have a Zxxxx witout the takedown catch and with hollow pins, but I would expect that. I think somewhere along about the D to E SNs things must have gotten stressy. My German is a bit feeble these days, but I'll get my German-English Dictionary out tomorrow and figure out the descriptions. I understand those prices have a 21% fee applied after the auction, so the prices are lower than the final cost.

    Radom P35 Question

    RedHat (or anyone else that knows the answer),

    What is the origin of the Type I, II, III classifications for Vis P35s? I have looked and looked and I can find MANY references to the various types, but no definitions. Actually, I have found some definitions, but I can't verify the accuracy and they seem to be contradictory. I even see P35s that in my mind are NOT Type I that are referred to as Type I (no grip slot, etc). The Terence Lapin book (which I have) does not use that classification. I think there is another book on the P35 which I cannot find. Maybe that's the source. I found one definition of the 3 types which claims ALL internal parts except the recoil spring and guide rod of Type I were blued including the barrel. I think there is much misunderstanding. I would like very much to see the definitive descriptions of the 3 types. Doesn't matter if we agree or disagree, just as long as we are all speaking the same language.

    Thanks...

    I've read the same thing. Very confusing.

    I haven't found anything concrete either. Depending on what you read on the web we either have a type 1 or a type II.
