I have a 1908 police rework which has a holdopen numbered wrongly to the gun.It is the correct fire blued type. When these guns were being reworked were parts replaced with parts from other guns? Would this lessen the value of the gun?

Thanks Roy

I have found that a mis-matched or un-numbered hold open devise will not affect the price at all. This part was prone to breaking during normal use, as such I would not consider this an issue in pricing the gun...good luck....and 1908 police models are a bit hard to find anyway...

Good point PL, although no expert in this matter, I (just my opinion), I believe that a part like that or even the firing pin, parts very prone to breakage cause much less concern than say a breachblock?

The question was " would this lessen the value of the gun"....to that I reply, no. Those who wish to down grade this gun because of the un-numbered holdopen, should be quickly pass by. This gun will hold it own in any Luger sale/auction and should not be discounted by the owner, just over this small internal part....now royusa when you get ready to sell it, let me know!

Thanks guys for your input. Let me ask you another question regarding this gun...have you ever seen a police holster with the vertical closing strap attached to the flap of the holster and the brass button on the body of the holster....the reverse from the usual????

This gun came with this holster, which is numbered to the gun and has the same police unit marks as the gun. The takedown tool is also numbered to the gun, as is the two mags.

I haven't gotten around to taking detailed photos but I took this one to show you the holster I will take more of the gun later. It has the sear safety and the grips have the slot for the mag. safety.
