Jesse, Does it look to you like a reblue? for instance does it appear that blue has been buffed off the safety and does the right hand end of the takedown lever appear to be blued. Sniff the bluing, does it smell like garlic? Does the rear toggle link appear to have the remains of a rear sight that has been ground off? Is there a serial number on the barrel?

I don't have the pistol yet, it is being sent to me. Saw it in the store, and took pics.
Don't know the fine points to look for. I'll learn on this one,I've always said it costs money to go to school.

Huey, is that as in helo's? My father-in-law flew copters in the army for 20 years, 3 tours in Nam.

Lots of photos is okay, and you're using a good size for those poor blokes on dial-up...

Loooks nice, btw

Nice luger, never be sorry for two many pictures, generaly it is the lack of them or no facilities that is a concern.

You are correct that luger tuition is not cheap but we all started somewhere.

May I have permission to use your photo of the crop dusting chopper to send to a friend of mine that pilots a Seaking helicopter for the Canadian military. Don is also a fine luger collector.

Looks to be heavy patina on the barrel , is this correct.

Jesse -

In the picture of the barrel serial number it appears that the frosting or halo normally found around the digits is missing, indicating that the gun might have been reblued at some time in its history. I believe that the halo around the barrel SN is almost universal in Imperial Lugers with original finish, but I am not sure that bit of wisdom applies to LP-08s. Perhaps someone more experienced with Imperial Artys could comment on this.

I believe that the dead give away to this pistol's doubtful lineage is the lack of fine tune sights on what would seem to be a 1914 DWM LP08.
