Default Odd markings on Model 65

Group,
I just saw a 65-5 in a pawn shop with a logo on the right side plate that I've never seen before.

It has the letters "PM" (or "MP") inside a circle with the word "Metropolitana" underneath. Any ideas as what this means or which agency used this gun? There are no obvious import markings.

Thanks!

Charles #1531

Hi Charles,

Sounds like it was from an export order for an overseas police department. I'm sure some more knowledgeable members can provide greater detail.

Actually I was thinking the same thing... I picked up a pristine Nickel Model 36 snubbie with correct box and papers from them. Good people to deal with..
