New owner, have 1939 42 Luger 736U
My reference material states grips usually numbered to pistol. my wood grips are numbered "2" on right "0" on left, on underside, about 1/4" in height. Rest of gun seems proper including both matching
magazines.
Are the grips possibly original? Replacements? thanks

Gentlemen, Wooden Luger Grips are always marked with the last 2 digits of the pistol serial number. That is, except the later G-Dates, 1936 and 1939 Code 42. These are rarely marked with the S/N!

Hope this helps!!

Edit Remarks: I refer to Military Mausers and I stand by my statement with regards to the numbers as they left the factory. Who knows what happens after they left!

I believe that 1908 DWM commercial Lugers do not have serial numbers on the grips. Also, some of the WW-I DWMs may not be marked.

Hey Frank, watch out for the word "always" when talking about Lugers. I've just about dropped it from my Luger vocabulary except when I say "always remember I could be wrong".
