Magazines are incorrect for the luger, you may have a forced match magazine with your 1917 luger. Is it possible to post photo's.

Magazines that are period correct for your luger would have wooden bases. numbers would be small lettering running left to right. Sounds as if you have Third reich era magazines with imperial luger.

I try not to place a value on US guns as that is not my place.

Hi Ron,
The primary thing to look for in identifying a police Luger is the sear safety. Rarely are they found without it. The flat dogleg bar that rests on the sideplate. As far as value, does it have any unit markings on the grip strap? This may or may not affect the value.
A nice clean police, with the correct holster could range from $800 to $1200 if everything matches, including mags.

We can take guesses, but it is much easier in real life, 2nd best is with lots of clear, larger pictures. Otherwise, they are just guesses, and you might as well go to Simpons LTD and compare retail prices there.

The police holster is also common as an eagle/L holster is not rare and condition is everything. Should the holster be 99% then big bucks for that one would be in order.

Ed is correct, photo's are important to assess value and sight unseen is only a guess at best. His suggestion to compare some of the online prices from the retailers is a good start but I have found that the asking and selling price is two different things in the retail market.
