Hi folks, came across luger in my travels and want to know if it is all original and what the value may be. I took as many pictures as seemed pertinent to the item. I certainly appreciate any expert advice that you all can offer including any details about the item in relations to its production and use. Thanks, DSC00050.jpg DSC00052.jpg DSC00053.jpg DSC00055.jpg DSC00056.jpg DSC00058.jpg DSC00059.jpg DSC00060.jpg DSC00061.jpg DSC00062.jpg DSC00063.jpg DSC00064.jpg DSC00065.jpg DSC00066.jpg DSC00068.jpg DSC00071.jpg 20140828_191924.jpg 20140828_192016.jpeg DSC00044.jpg DSC00045.jpg

There are not stampings under the grips, mags do not have serials, bore looks good and clean. Feeds well, fires well. Best ideas on storage and care are also appreciated.

I don't know if I like the holster? Pictures of the rear?

I am no expert on a byf, but here goes. byf = Mauser - 42 = 1942

mags are what I would expect for that era and are nice ones

I would say use some 0000 (nothing more coarse), if no 0000 steel wool, than just scrub with a cloth with oil on it. Never anything too harsh, also be very careful in taking off grips.

Value, if all matching (check that firing pin, hold open and rear toggle pin match last two) - $1400 alone, add another $150 for extra mag, if holster ok, than another $200 (tool inside?)

Good pictures :)

I field stripped it and all numbers are a match to the firing pin. Is is normal to have un-marked wood grips on this? Also, any thoughts on the holster. It had an unmarked tool inside that shows signs of age.

Hmm my pics of the rear holster did not come through. It has a waffen stamp and jln42 and PO8 on the right.

My estimate on bluing would be 70-80 %. Rather hard to determine from photo because they usually look worse than when in hand. The grips appear to be in better shape than the rest of the luger? No number on grips is fine. I question the holster. The stitching and edge are uneven for one thing. Jerry B. may give you an answer on the holster. Really not a bad luger depending upon price.

Believe it is for Deutsch Leder-Werkstatten who manufactured in 1942-3. Please feel free to correct that...
