I was recently looking at a french pistol that was a WWII bring back. It had "POLICE D'ETAT" on the slide but no German markings. This would lead me to assume the pistol was taken off of a french police officer or from a police station, but I was wondering if the German's ever used pistols from occupied countries without acceptance markings? Would they mark weapons that were already made? Maybe in the final days of the war. The soldier who brought back the pistol was in the 20th Armored Division so wouldn't have arrived in France until Feb of 1945.
