My grandpa recently passed away. He had one as well. Here are some links that helped me identify what type it was.

Thing to check is if all parts are matching serial numbers. After that, look at finish and engraving. Officer's models had much finer finish and sometimes engraved with Name rank unit etc. A friend of mine acquired a German artillery officers model back in the early 70's that had all that plus it had the longer barrel, snail drum magazine and a small wooden stock that attached to turn it into a rifle all of this in the original leather holster. I saw him turn down $15k for it back in the 70's at Dallas gun show. Collectors everywhere where trying to get it from him. AFAIK he still has it. Serial numbering is everything and will help determine value, where it was made and who it was issued to.
