Colorado Gun Collectors show this weekend-any other Mauser Parabellum collectors going?

The CGCS is this weekend in Greeley, not far from my home in Fort Collins.

I've liked Lugers since the 1960s and specialize in Mauser Parabellums.

Are any other collectors planning to attend?

If so, let me know, we could visit for coffee, compare notes and perhaps talk about mutually helpful trades or sales of these pistols and accessories.

Best regards, Joe.

Yes, it is common to find hairline cracks in the magazines. I'll attach a more extreme example from a gun I got from Simpson, Ltd-it had been stuffed into the styrofoam spare mag slot so I did not know until I removed it. I would also caution buyers to look out for grip screw distortion which is ugly and may indicate the grips were shot loose. I have not fired any of my Mauser Parabellums, none of mine seem to have been fired since the factory tests.

I can’t go to the show, but I would ask y’all to watch for CZ 24s that are unit marked. I have a 2 “P” marked pistols and one “Z” marked. Illustrative pictures (not mine, just ones I harvested of the ‘net), and below those partial list of unit marks. If you see one of these I’d love to get a pm so that I could get with the seller on a possible deal.

I'm returning this afternoon, I'll try to help, Joe.
Thank you!

Sorry, the only CZ24 at the show was made during the occupation, needless to say, no unit markings, Joe.
