Hi Buck,

Depends on the condition, I guess. Frankonia in Germany reworked a number of them some years ago and these went for some 700 - 900EUR. The reworking had turned them in great looking shooters, but collectability went out the window. They had new small parts and barrels, salt-dip blue and matching 02/1001 magazines (force-matched, of course), no original grips, but Nill replacements.

The russian cross-type capture mark on the grip strap gives the Russian origin away.

I doubt that original Russian supply lugers will still have their grips, as the storing methods I heard off, consisted of grip removal and storage of guns in oil-filled barrels.

This is one of Frankonia's Russian lugers. I swapped the Nill grips for some Russian grips I bougth a while ago, thought it was kinda suitable.
