Since I posted pics of my new LP08 in that section, I thought I post pics of my WWII Luger...a 1940 dated 42. It is 100% matching, and in decent shape. It lives in a nice 1942 cey marked holster...

Mike, you have a beauty!! Congratulations!!

One word of advice - don't store the pistol in the holster!!

I have seen many otherwise nice handguns ruined from being stored in their holsters.

Hey Frank, thanks for the tip....I will remove them from the holsters....what happens to them being stored in the holster? I do keep them in the holsters, but they are in my collection room, in the air, not like they are stored in boxes in a damp or inhospitable environment...

In any case if there is potential for damage, I will remove them from the holsters...

Mike, however careful, leather will have a tendency to be hydroscopic (picks up water). Grant you in a cool, dry environment, maybe not much. To me it just isn't worth the chance to rust a nice firearm.
