Selected here from my collection is a rather decent example of a 211 waffenamted G Date Luger and its 1935 dated holster. I have been told that the 211 waffenamted example is quite scarce and not readily found. In fact, I've been told that it is the rarest of all the G Dates, if so then enjoy viewing a complete rig.

Huggiebear,
Nice photos, I have a G-date that was made before yours 1131-d with the same 211 waffenamt inspector mark. not sure how rare it is?, maybe Jan can shead some light on that.

Just an interesting observation, I also have a 1937 (2nd variation, no strawed parts) with the same 4437 ser number.
Thanks for sharing the photos
Jim

What really amazes me , is all the G Dates that one can find and really exceptional examples at that, but K Dates are still an uncommon gun. I realize that there is a numbers game here but still,with only one year apart in production, an awlful lot of G Dates can be had. My reasoning for this perhaps was that maybe they went/issued to staff members rather than combat units, hence the survibility rate was higher and condition being better. Who knows !?! If I had to wish for anything, one would be for a 30 second history orientation from each of my pieces.

Hello Huggie, perhaps another reason you see more G-Dates is because they made more G-Date. In round numbers, they made 10,000 K-Date and 50,000 G-Dates.
