Deutsche Werke PistolsDeutsche Werke Aktiengesellschaft is the company that produced the pistol in Erfurt Germany in the 1920s. The pistol is commonly called an "Ortgies" vest pocket pistol after its original designer. These pistols were offered in .25ACP (6.35mm), .32ACP (7.65mm), and some in .380 (9mm Kurtz). They are not very valuable or rare. Judging only from a photo published in the American Rifleman these pistols may be the same as ERMA pistols, incorporated in Germany in 1949 and beginning imports to the U.S.in 1960. Mine has 'Germany'stamped under the deutsche markings, and may have been imported in the 1930's.

You can check gunbroker.com or gunsamerica.com to get an idea on current asking prices. The models in 380 bring the most as most were made in 25 or 32. Asking prices & selling prices may be very different.

when was the Deutsche werk werk erfurt 22 single made and what is the worth? I was told by a gunsmith that they were made sometime after WW1 for export to improve the trade balance for germany. They were mass produced and sold cheaply. They mostly have sentimental value. It was the first gun I ever fired when I was 6 years old. I still have it and am now aged 69.

What would you like to know about this pistol? I've done quite a bit of research on these.

Can't tell from the information you gave- which is that you have a .32 ACP caliber pistol made in Erfurt Germany. But if you have a DWM (Deutsche Werk und Munitionsfabriken) Pocket Automatic (similar to the FN Browning Model 1910) they were made from ABOUT 1921-1931. In good condition, about a $450-$500 pistol.

That little shotgun was made by Deutsche Werke, a German company that had operations in Kiel, Berlin, and Erfurt. The Erfurt plant made the shotgun and a youth 22 rifle with the same loading and firing mechanism. They were more famous for making the Ortgies pocket pistol, a semi-automatic in various calibers. These arms were made from 1919 until some time in the 1930s. The pistols can be found regularly on the online auctions, and the 22 rifles less often. The shotguns are even rarer, but not of great value. I saw two offered online in the past couple of years, and the price was around $250 - $450.

it is either a erfurt pistol or an Erfurt rifle, which ???

Gun shop or gun show. But first you will need to determine the exact model of your handgun and caliber. By the way, correct name is a magazine, not a clip.
