@Vlim was correct, the Legacy price was pretty good. I should’ve picked it up for research to compare to my 1325
There is absolutely no comparison to in hand inspection. I totally disagreeMany buyers are very insensitive to refurbished guns. They do spend thousands on them. Actually, there is no need to buy "knowledge guns" nowadays due to high quality digital photos can be acquired easily, free. Cash can stay in money market to earn 5% without doing anything.
Because of one guy , who may or not own Lugers ? He is super knowledgeable but not sure he deserves that much impact 😆An observation from the other side of the fence.
Seems obvious the hype from this site has an impact on Mauser prices.
Seems obvious the witch hunt on HK's on this site has an impact on prices also.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK folks as I am really enjoying buying HK's for 1/4 of the cost of plastic grip Mausers
Would not feel that way but my Mauser collection is full
I think they are very specific. I have a few now , I think it would be hard to pass a “fake “ by me because the “tells” of a good one are so specific. They are not marked like factory Mauser at all .The internet messes everything up. At first it drives prices down as the pool of available items expands, then, as everything gets bought up with increasing speed the pool shrinks just as fast, and demand/desire begins to outpace availability and the price curve gets really steep.
I don't know why we don't see more faked Ku lugers. Seems it would be a pretty easy variant to make with the right skill set. And a "restored" example would tell no tales.
You arent my target market if Im making them. But take the byf in this thread. S42 or blank barreled byf. Add lza on the barrel. Sand the proofs flat on the right. Add luft. Bang Ku on the left. Strip and dip.="Jason S L, post: 1021820, member: 42711"]

When basic WWII 1911a1 hit 3k+ l
I’d say it’s in that category. I guess my comment is more along the old adage of a rising tide raises all boats. Some may rise higher than others initially but they seem to have a way to eventually level out.Does this mean my NICE 1943 Colt 1911A1 serial 903701 with numbered slide is worth more than the $1,000 it cost me 7/15/95 ?
It along with a NICE 1943 holster is my entire 1911 collection
