Hello All, I hope everyone is having a great 4th weekend!
I am looking at a very nice MKII, 1988 vintage. No box, just the pistol. Did they ever come with a barrel in the white, this one does. I thought they were all parked to match the pistol. It is marked in the shroud area with the matching serial number, labeled Cal 9mm Luger and has the Browning pineapple proof near the cam area.

Best Regards
