A picture will tell the tale. From your description it does sound like a 1922. They are an ugly, long nosed pistol, but very well made. They were made in two calibers, 7.65mm ( or .32ACP), and 9mm x 17 Kurz (Short) 380ACP.
If it is a 1922, your serial number indicates A Dutch manufactured gun from 1940. The Germans made untold numbers of these under occupation. In fact, the pistol was produced until 1982. The reich marks on your indicate captured or produced under occupation.

Does it look something like this:



20-25 years ago, an old boy I knew had several WWII bring back pistols for sale, including one of these in 32ACP.

Could've had it for $50, but passed.
