I just looked at a 1936 S/42 Luger and am totally confused.All numbers on the piece matched.The receiver has the droop E/63 acceptance marks.The only markings on the barrel is a crown/n.All markings seem properly stamped except the rear connecting pin which has the number etched into it.The pistol is in a black (commercial ?)
holster.It is maker marked and dated 1936 and has NO acceptance marks.The tool is unmarked.The finish on this thing is unreal.The numbers are all clear and sharp as new.It has two mags numbered the same and also 1 and 2.The catch on the mags is that one is a type 4 and the other is marked 2/1001.One other thing is that the pull up strap in the holster seems to be attached by some type of a metal fastener which cannot be seen from the outside.This whole rig seems almost factory new. HELP

Joe,
* Sounds like a DDR/VOPO pistol.
* I think the replacement barrel is proofed with the post WWII Crown/N of the East Germans.
* Mags are marked w/ the "1" & "2" in the Police Style. The "2/1001" mag is from the old WWII Haenel plant taken over by the DDR/Russians. Name changed to E. Thalmann after the War.
* Any 2 line importer's marking on the right side of the receiver? Something like "E.C.C.S.A." They brought in a number of like configured/marked pistols in the late 80's or early 90's, I believe.

I looked all over the pistol and saw no import marks.The only mark I saw was on the left side of the receiver ,in front of the serial number,and it looks more like a slight defect than it does a mark.
Is that post war c/n pictured in Still's Luger book?
