Dear Friends,

I´m needing some help here since I don´t have this volume of Mr. Still´s books (shame on me!). Here is the story:

A friend of mine is a newbie collector and is trying to get a good III Reich-era Luger. Last week a Luger byf 41 was offered to him. The seller sent him some pictures, a little bit blurred, but the pistol really looks OK, including with the eagle on toggle and Waffenamts on the receiver. Here are the same pics:

However, he was talking about this purchase with another collector friend and this guy told him that “all the Lugers with byf41 code were sold to Portugal and didn´t see any use in the Wehrmacht. The only exception were the Black Widows”. To say the truth, this statement sounded really strange to me! I know that Portugal bought some Lugers in 1942 and after from some stocks but most were byf42 (I don´t remember what were the suffixin those batches).

But, it may seems stupid, but I like to hear your opinion on this.

Thanks in advance,

Douglas.

What does "this guy" collect, the tops off of old Fords?
Garfiled,

Now that you mentioned, you´re right: he collects Old West guns!

Frank, Pancho: Many thanks for the info. I told to my friend to grab that P-08!

Best wishes,

Douglas.
