Guys,
I am selling this for my friend. It has been in his family for awhile and was given to him by his dad. I have held and looked it over and it is a nice WW2 capture with honest wear and no import marks. I am no Luger guru, but I did a little looking and found that it is a Mauser made P08 made in 1941. I do not know if the holster is WW2, as it has no waffenampts. If you would like specific pics, please let me know and it shall be done. THe mag is not matching and has a bakelite bottom. It appears that the major componants are matching, but several parts have "78" stamped on them. The wear pattern is consistent thurought the pistol, so I don't think there has been any monkey business. Hopefully someone can enlighten me.

He would like to complete this transaction within the state of Ohio and meet within a reasonable driving distance from Stark County. $1200 with the holster and mag.

i'm not an expert.
but it looks like it was refinshed and has mixed parts on it......making that $1200 a little on the outside.

It's not my price. What are the refinish clues? Other than the numbers

Look at the byf area. See how there is patina, with what looks like newer bright blue around it, and darker faded blue to the sides? But it looks like the bluing didn't take around the stampings?

That is characteristic of someone using cold blue to patch up worn areas. I am not an expert, just trying to help answer the question.

Also... not a Luger expert so this may be off... but on the side of the pistol where the eagle and stuff is stamped... the markings look faded, like they were sanded or sand blasted over or something. It is kinda unusual to have the upper so neat and the lower with patina like that.

Hope this helps.

some of the smaller parts had a strawed finish. that one is lacking them.
the trigger is most noticable in those reguards.

I probably should just stay out but........

Don't the remarks on this ad seem to break rule #5? :confused:

5. Absolutely no stomping on other peoples posts. Do not remark in any way that would negatively impact the sale of someone?s merchandise.

In my opinion, no. I respect the knowledge base here. I've never owned a Luger and cannot afford to ever own one, thus I never took tohe time to learn about them in any great depth. All good info.

Mixed, yes, but doesn't look to have been refinished.

Late Lugers (WWII), this was pretty common for a service pistol that actually saw service.
