Hello,

Could someone help me to Id this mag. I believe that it is a luger mag but I don't know which year or model. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Hello Westwind! The magazine is for a Luger! In fact, it is for a Luger made in 1937 and, in addition, the Luger is known as a 1st SubVariation. This means it has a strawed finish on some of the small parts (take down lever, magazine release button, trigger, safety lever and ejector). The Luger was completed about February of 1937. I hope this helps!

Frank, thank you for your reply.

I found this mag mixed in with some walther mags I had purchased.
I do not have a Luger, so I think I will trade it or sell it. Would you have any idea what a fair price for this mag would be, other than one dollar ?

Thank you

Of course...if you find the owner of the gun that needs this magazine...it could easily become a $ 500 magazine...:)

Heard this happened between a couple of members regarding an HK magazine...that price went up to $ 1000...:(

Fortunately, that's not how most luger collectors react to a fellow collector when a matching magazine is involved. A lot of collectors have found a matching magazine on my magazine mailing list. Nobody ever told me they were "held up". Reasonable cash or the trade for a like magazine seemed to work. Hope it continues in that direction.

that and you got Cecil all excited....

Cecil, check prices on e-bay, or just offer it here on the forum and it'll sell fairly fast, provided it is in good shape.

As a small Luger collector from Washington, I must admit that I am very impressed with your knowledge of the Mauser luger. I wonder, are you absolutely sure that all - r - block 1937-S42 Lugers had straw small parts. I'm searching for data to prove this issue, can you help?
Thanks and good collecting.
