The letters D.R.G.M. stand for Deutsche Reich Gebrauch Muster (i.e., the German Reich License for Use). The presence of the French word „Brevete" does not necessarily mean that the gun was not made in Germany as it does appear on pistols definitely known to have been made there-some early Bergmanns for example. The conclusion is that both may have been made in Belgium, and this is further borne out by the identity of all details in the grip monogram which consists of the word SIMPLEX. Admittedly, grips can be transferred from one gun to another-which naturally sometimes leads to confusion.
