Norm, The 1938 gun is #10059. If you click directly on the Legacy link, there is no 1938 HK picture. HK #10059 is an earlier gun in this thread.

Compiled list of known Krieghoffs. Please fill in any missing info if you have first hand knowledge. Most of all I want to track condition as these guns will resurface in MINT condition and with 2 matched mags, so it's important that we get it right now! This will be extremely valuable in 10 years!!. Happy to report we just untied an orphan mag with the gun. One HAPPY forum member. If you would like to send me serials and/ or descriptions my email address is [email protected]
Thanks

Hi all, this is my first posting. I have a very nice all matching krieghoff s-code serial-1283. I see in the updated list that there is an orphaned magazine out there. I have a krieghoff magazine numbered 2630 (also for s-code) but I would love to reunite the orphan with its parent. Does anyone know where orphan 1283 is currently residing? Please let me know.

Hello All -

I am not much of a forums user and very novice (starter) Luger "guy". I have a friend with a local gun shop that has two Lugers brought in on consignment as part of an estate. I have been researching both mainly because I find it interesting and I am a gun / history buff. One I thought this specific group would be interested in and can maybe provide me some additional information if there is any. It is a Krieghoff 1938 with all of the LWaW proof markings. All the serial numbers match - #10019 but it does not have the matching magazine. In fact I meant to include the magazine # but I forgot to record it. I will get it at a later date. It is not in great condition but there is not rusting or pitting. I am not sure if my pictures are showing. If not I will try again tonight.

Since this post was seven years ago and Kipodom doesn't appear to be active I assume this is a shot in the dark but I think I have the paperwork for when this gun was sent home as a trophy. Serial number 10019 32 caliber German pistol. Taken 18 Nov 1945

A .32 cal. German pistol with that serial number could be a variety of different handguns. Usually take-home papers refer to Lugers as 9mm or .38cal.

It COULD be. By referring to it as .32cal. it is unlikely it's a luger. However, if I were owner of HK #10019 (9mm), then I would want the papers.

I see both of the Kreighoff Lugers I have here, are in the database, but they have no additional information.

I can assist you by letting you know the following:

1936 SN 5635 is in 98% condition with perfect straw parts and the correct matching magazine.... It has the slightest localized pitting on the boarder of the crown where it meets the blueing, and a miniscule scratch in the blue on the underside of the barrel, otherwise perfect.

1937 SN 7617 is in 99% condition with matching magazine and no physical defects that I can see. An extremely picky person might note a slight bit of holster wear on the barrel where the crown meets the blue. Lighting would have to be perfect to see it.

I'll try to get some pictures up over the next few days.

Hit me up if you have specific marking questions that you need for the database.

Warmest regards,

Darin Prince
