Model WTP II

WTP II was a much more compact design than its predecessor, with 2" barrel and separate grip panels instead of Mauser's usual wrap-around grip. Production was limited by the outbreak of WWII, so WTP II is much scarcer than WTP I. Under French occupation, at least several hundred WTP II's were assembled and sold; these can be identified by their very low electric penciled serial numbers and lack of German proofing. Brings a slight premium over pre-war German manufactured pistols.
