Maybe something like this? Unless you have happened to chance upon one of the ultra-rare Kriegyhoff presentation Luger grips (no chance in a million) you have purchased some custom made grips. That doesn't make them "fake", they just aren't original.
Ron,i bought these grips of a chap who has been among lugers for 65 years and is as honest as you can be,i will try to put some photos on at the weekend for you to have a look at, this old chap has helped people like sam costanzo with vol 2 world of lugers so i think that they will be right.
i payed $935.00 which i thought was alot for a pair of grips,
but the old guy is giving up . he had no pistols because of the pistol ban over here in the uk but he kept what he was able to do legally.
i will have to get some photos on here to show you.
Chris, that is a lot of money, and on this side of the ocean, we have never heard of these grips, so it would be helpful to tell us why they are worth a lot, why you thought they were worth a lot, etc?
They are very nice and do closely resemble the presentation grips shown in Gibson's "The Krieghoff Parabellum" on page 199. The execution of the leaves is a little less precise however, and the center panel is not checkered. I am afraid it will take someone far more qualified than I am to evaluate these grips as to origin and authenticity.
