I had this posted on the old forum, just thought I would post it here again if nobody minds. It is a vet bringback, the whole set together, completely matching including magazine. Came with the belt and one K98 pouch. I am new to the P08 game but this one is my favorite of the three I own. Has the vet's Canadian service number written in the flap. Hope the pics work!

Thanks for posting beautiful photographs of an outstanding 1937 S/42 Mauser Luger (sn 8556r)(straw) rig.

The purpose of this forum is the exchange information, by posting such photographs you benefit all the members with the information and benefit yourself by getting a chance to show off your gun.

Thanks again for your great photographs.

It is interesting that the matching magazine has stick E/63 and the Luger droop E/63. This must be a transitional magazine.

Jan, good eyes!! I believe the M-Block magazine is for a 1938 Luger and the R-Block is for a 1939, Code 42. If one examines the size of the E/63 between the two magazines, the R-Block is slightly larger than the M-Block. This slightly larger size is typical of the first few blocks of the 1939, Code 42 production.

Hello Josef,

Congratuations on an oustanding set. The pistol is in gorgeous condition. You have a 'keeper' indeed.

Well done,
Albert
