Christmas was early - 1937 S42

Thanks to the good advice if several on gunboards.com I picked up my first Luger today. A 1937 S42. It is in pretty nice shape for it's age - it is not re-blued, original grips and all-matching but for the magazine. There is some light pittling on the barrel as if it were stored in a damp holster. The bore is very nice. The magazine has an aluminum end and is stamped 9114 with the "63" waffenamt. It needs a good cleaning. I will post pictures when I get home. Not bad for $400 I think.

Thanks for your help.

Looks nice, sounjds like a real bargain for $400.

BTW, can you change your profile to display your real name. It is a requirment for this board.

Thanks, and I meant to say earlier, it looks like the luger bug has bitten you? Easy to do, a bit expensive, but a great hobby these old guns.

For you suffix guys, is this an "X" or a "K"?? Maybe another letter?
