Hi I have been a reader here but this is my first post. I have long wanted an "artillery luger". Most of them that I have seen are in the $2000 and higher range. I recently have found one for $1200. The guy who has it is not a dealer. He is a collector who sets up at a show every now and then and sells duplicates to fund his collecting. I have dealt with heim before and I tend to trust him. The pistol in question is a 1917 DWM appeaars to be all matching. When he bought it it was not registered(here in MI all handguns need to be registered). He has registered it. While the pistol is not minty or even 90% it seems to be an honest70%-80%. Does that price seem to be realistic? Sorry for the long post but this is a very new area for me. Thanks!
