Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I am one of the firearms experts here. Let me do some research on that unit to see what I can come up with.....

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

I've got a partial explanation of the marking, but would you happen to have a photo of it that I could see?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no. not yet
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

ok....it would be helpful if I could see the marking. Let me ask - are you certain of what markings you indicated, or could there be another letter combination?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Here is the letter combo again "S.Kst.Mrs.2.2", There is a U.2 just before that has been strucked out by an armorer. I have this luger on layaway at a local gun shop and this is why I don't have a pic yet.
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I understand. I'm having some trouble with this one. The S. Kst leads me to believe that it is a Prussian Military Police unit, but other things that I'm seeing lead me to believe that it may refer to a Medical unit of some kind....still working on it.
