Presented from out of my collection is a piece which when I opened it up for photographic work did not remember having a S/42 sear safety rig. So much for senior moments. Enjoy it as much as I have in rediscovering it.

James, I don't believe that I understand your question. The unmarked magazine in my second last photo is the number 1 magazine as shown in my last photo. Yes, both magazines came with the pistol when purchased. It's early in the morning and I am not my best so you will have to ask me again later in the day.

Huggiebear , couldn't get right back to you as I work away from home but the reason that I had asked about the magazines is one looks like a extruded magazine with the box spring and the other looks to be a crimped type with the coil spring and it never occurred to me that two different types of magazines would be issued at the same time with a pistol. Their is no question that the stamping is the same because when you magnify the photo the stamps and the depth of numbers are identical. Just have not run across that before,however in this field anything is possible

James, you are correct in that the number 3 magazine is extruded as I believe that you will find most but not all police number 3 magazines to be extruded, at least to the extent that I have observed. They were issued at the Police Depot and were using what was procured. What remains a mystery to me is why have number 1&3 when logic would suggest that it should have been 2&3 instead. I guess it did not matter to the original owner which numbered mag he had in his luger when on duty or in this case capture.
