I was talking with a Luger dealer at the last Portland gun show, and he mentioned to me that counterfeiters were beginning to turn their attention to Luger unit marks. This is the first I've actually heard about this, although it has occurred to me in the past that this is something which could easily be done, and wondered how one could protect oneself against it.

How much of a real concern is this? Has anyone seen examples of counterfeit marks, or heard of verified cases of this? Or am I just buying myself trouble here?

As the demand, interests, and most importantly prices increase, the more attention the fakers will take with turning their "crafts" into a more enterprising expanded arena. Unit markings will become no different than sear safeties or KU enchanced models.

It is amazing that it is worth it? But, if it is simply "time" then it doesn't matter how long it takes.

You would need to add the marks, buff them to make them look older, then reblue the entire gun and ensure it looked "old".

Lots of work for not much return?
