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!
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 ?
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.
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.
