I found the best way to KNOW Krieghoff's is to take apart known originals. They are quite unique as Luger's go. I would never buy one without the ability to dismantle it. Gibson's book may very well be outdated and have a few mistakes but there is none better out there. STUDY any reliable resource you know of..Photo's won't always show what you want to see..Your seller has to cooperate and have an ironclad return policy. But YOU have to be the ultimate arbiter.

My only Krieg is a old beater warhorse 1936. It's all original though and I learned a LOT from it. Fortunately some fellow friends/collectors have let me take apart some stunning original Krieghoff's and I learned/confirmed much more to my great satisfaction. But they are not all carbon copies although Krieghoff had some very interesting ways of doing things you will not see in Mauser pistols. Only study and a passionate interest will save you on a purchase unless you buy from a knowledgeable krieghoff collector or get lucky.
