Grab it.
Sounds like one of the rare Suhl models... I'm not certain, but it's almost certainly one of the most valuable out there.
I'll do some peeking around... but wanted to post this first so you didn't let it get away.

well i dont really know anything about them, but according to Makarov.com, the square with the circle represents an East German. see attached pic.
Probably the best people to talk to are cigarman & Domzilla9

A Simson-Suhl has a marking on it that is a blacksmith's hand and hammer hitting an anvil, put on by the factory. It will also have a number on it (less than 800, indicating it's serial). They were made after the fall so if it is a '61 it is not a Simson-Suhl.

Suhl is where the plant was located. Thaelman is the commie who was honored by naming the plant after him. That marking is placed on the pistol by the importer. Ruko did "billboard"-type import marks on the left side of the slide about 1/16th of an inch high.

This is an EG military, early import. If it is in 90%+ condition it is worth about $250. Some will not pay over 225 for a Ruko billboard in 98% condition. It is not one of the highly collectable ones, but is interesting, and an EG nonetheless.

Are the mags EG mags and marked with the serial number of the pistol? If so, add 25-30 bucks to the value, one or two mags.

BTW, If the grip has no hole in the back below the screw, it is probably original, if it has a hole it was rearsenaled (that was done in 1969).

You got a great deal on this one.

strange my markings are on the right

and they are fairly tiny..and yes the mags are marked to the pistol. i don't know what the attraction is to these little devils but i got it bad. matter of fact i like small pistols on the whole. i seem to end up with bigger than i want then have to trade around to get a smaller one. lol i want a cz-83 gimme gimme but only in 9x18. and a berretta 21a oh i want them all. i seem to shoot the little ones better even though i have huge meathook hands. tanks for the info to all. bye the bye i got a sig 220 in .45acp that i hate anybody wanna help me out? reckon i should put an ad in the for sale or trade...
