My opinion - RE: the Mauser contract with the Police. All G-date Police Lugers shipped from Mauser were in the late - e - or early - f - block. They were drilled for a sear safety, not installed. A few have a magazine safety, most have the remains of a magazine safety. A few escaped this modification as indicated by close examination. No magazines or holsters were shipped. All holsters were purchased in Berlin by the Police depot. All magazines came from C.G. Haenel. Fact is these were the first of the september 1935 contract and had a scriptic Haenel - H - on the heal of the magazine body and spine marked logo. Same magazine for the early 1936-S/42 Police contract. The only Military production Lugers ever shipped from Mauser to the Police were;
1. G-S/42 in the late - e - and - f - block. Maybe 650
2. 1936-S/42 in the - g - block few later in the - h - block. About 400
3. 1939-S/42 in the - n - block, about 2300 with 2-MM-SE6 magazines
4. 41-byf in the - o - and - p - block. Maybe a 1000 with 3-MM-122 magazines
There were no K-dates, 1937-S/42, 1938-S/42, 1939-42, 1940-42 or 42-byf Lugers shipped directly from Mauser to the Police depot. Yet there are a few out there, won in a poker game?? who knows. I have a very interesting Kriegsmarine - O - property number 1937-S/42 with a sear safety. Where did the Police find this one?? 1938 to 1942 was the police Banner Eagle K, F, C, and L era.
Anybody have magazines for list 020, Help!!!
