I recently posted some photos of my 1936 Navy rig which I then learned was faked. Now I' m posting some photos of my other 1936 Luger. It has a holster numbered to the gun and one matching mag. The tool is marked with what looks like a droop wing E/63. I bought this rig 20 years ago in San Francisco Bay Area for $650 from Alfred Ex, if anyone knows him. Hopefully this one is correct. The s/n is 615 l (L).

Excellent photographs and presentation. Your 1936 615 L rig complete with matching mag, numbered holster, and DE/63 tool looks complete and original(based on the photographs). It has normal age and wear on the straw and blue. Beautiful original rig.
Thanks
Jan

Harry,
* Excellect example. As shown, it is correct in every way. Indeed a keeper you can take great pleasure from.
* I especially like the bonus of a matching number marked holster.
* Thanks for sharing.

Perfect in every way, right down to the drooped wing tool. Thankyou for the photo's. I used your example to compare with mine serial # 627i and they most definetly were made at the same plant although I do not have a matched set like yours. Great find and thanks for bringing it out of "closet" to show us the photo,s On another note you will observe that your luger does not have the mauser hump that is found later on the rear of frame on Mauser lugers. The 1936 & some early 1937 still have the rust blue finish as it was in 1937 that the blueing process changed from rust blue to hot salt blue with the small parts bieng blued opposed to the strawing on yours. Also 1935 is the year in which Hitler denounced the treaty of Versailles armament restrictions and 1936 is the first year in which chamber markings were commenced openly so you have a very excellent example of the transition between the blueing process, chamber marking, hump on rear of frame and the drooped wing eagle opposed to the later stick winged/or straight wings that came in 1937. A definite collector rig and one that I personaly would not shoot.

In reply to lugerlou's informative comments about my 1936 luger and the Mauser hump, I am attaching some photos of my 1937 luger with the hump, and with parts strawed in 1936 and now blued in 1937. This rig s/n 2767w came with two matching mags, a droop wing E/63 marked tool (should be straight wing 63 like the magazines??) and a 1937 dated holster. In the photo of the two lugers, the one on the left without the hump is the 1936, the one on the right with the hump is the 1937 just as lugerlou said. Thanks lugerlou, as this was all new to me.

You have some very nice stuff hidden away in that closet, another tidbit of info for you is with the pictures of the two magazines on your 1937. The one has a plus sign and this denotes the extra magazine in military fashion also your example shows the difference between a matching magazine and a original matching magazine.

Lugerlou,

Perhaps displaying my lack of experience and naievete, but...at least in the photo, both of those magazines look pretty good. Could you supply an analysis which differentiates which one is the original and which the fake?

Sorry for the confusion, Harry did not understand what I had meant by original matching and matching magazines. Both of Harry's magazines are truly original, what I was pointing out to Harry was that in true military fashion the plus sign denotes the extra magazine and thus makes the pair of Harry's magazines correct to the firearm, unlike magazines that are forced matched to a particular pistol. I had thought that I was clear on that point.Also Dwight I do not believe that you are naive on any point as your posts are usually correct. I was paying Harry a complement that was taken wrongly
