c1920s mfr. WEIMAR Era FRANZ STOCK 7.65x17mm .32 ACP Pistol Germany WW2 C&R
Finely Crafted German .32 ACP Sidearm
Here we present a C&R Franz Stock Type 1 Semi-automatic Pistol in 7.65mm, or .32 ACP, made circa the 1920s in Berlin, Germany. This pistol was manufactured by the German company Franz Stock Maschinenbau und Werkzeugfabrik. The Franz Stock pistols are well made and inherently accurate due to their fixed barrel and precision manufacture. This high-quality pistol was made for the commercial market, though a few were used by law enforcement and military personnel. Manufacture probably began late in 1920 though prototypes may have been made as early as 1918. The “Service Pistol” designation is a late usage, but derives from the company itself.
The type 1 pistol is distinguished by the squared-off front portion of the arms of the slide where they merge into the barrel sheath, almost making the barrel sheath look like a separate piece. The slide has 15 triangular-cut serrations that are slightly angled to match that of the rear contour of the gun.
The overall condition is very good. Original finish. The action is excellent. The bore is bright with great rifling. The grips are solid with the right grip having a short, stable split.
