I recently picked up an a block 1940 42 code Luger. I am trying to figure out what month this may have been made in. My a block byf 41 black widow is a December 1941 gun. I wasn't sure if this would be the same case as the 1940 luger. Thanks in advance.

Your 1940 42 code happens to fall close to the beginning of production in 1940 with the first pistols being in the late (z) block.

Your byf 41 falls at the very end of 1941 production, with 1941 production beginning in the (n) block and ending in the (a) block.

USCS03, The "A" Block 1940 Code 42 were produced in February/ March 1940 time frame. Hope this helps a little!

Thanks guys. I have not yet posted the black widow or this pistol to the grip survey. I just had surgery so I have plenty of time on my hands.
