I am translating a patent dealing with firearms and mention is made of a "Sortpistole". "Außerdem ist aus der DE 36 31 262A1 eine Sortpistole gezeigt, deren Oberteil insgesamt auswechselbar ist ..."

any help is much appreciated,

Dear efreitag,

Thank you for your assistance. It stands to reason that this would be a typo when I consider the entire document. I apologize for responding so late - we have had a great deal of legal/family troubles and this is my first opportunity to respond.

Best regards,
