I have a late model Star B2 Series 9 m/m pistol with a local marking on the front grip strap.
LPN. Any idea what that means?
Thanks.

Star Modelo B's are wonderful pistols...

I thin LPN is a West German Police mark... Landespolizei (not sure what the N is...maybe town or district)

LPN=LANDES POLIZEI NEIDERSACHSEN, a German police agency located in lower Saxony, if memory serves me.

Not unique to Star pistols; it is also seen on other German police pistols. While there are generally more unmarked than marked pistols out there, LPN is one of the more frequently seen abbrviations on marked pistols. So, not rare, but only occasionally encountered.
