Hi fellas. What a great site. I have learned so much in the last couple weeks, I almost impressed myself!! But, I still have a couple questions. Did the Germans number their luger mags up to the very end, or did they stop at some point? I'm looking for one with a matched mag, but is an un-numbered plastic or aluminum fxo(?) alright? If so, what date or serial range would it be alright? Same with grip panels. Many sellers say all matched, but does that always include the grips too? Maybe there's a chart somewhere I should be looking at? This will inevitably be my only one and I want one that is all correct from the get-go. I had been looking at a great 1918 DWM Police, but may have asked too many questions because the seller hasn't written back. I feel bad. So, I'm looking at everything again. I would like a tie-in to WW2 and have seen many of that period with and without matched mags and no notice of numbered (matched) grips. Maybe I'm looking for something that's not even supposed to be there? In any case, any direction would be much appreciated. In my P38 world, there are a lot of variables to know before collecting the right piece. It appears lugers are even more so. Thanks in advance. Dave

Dave....... I would suggest you considering investing in one of Jan Still's books as a great place to start. Pick the one that best suits what you think you are interested in. A long long time ago in a far away galaxy a wise old luger collector told me to buy the books before you buy the guns........ Good advice.........

Hi Ron. Thanks for the insight. The thread kinda explains why I keep seeing the phrases matched or correct. Hi Dave. Yes, I should invest in one or two of Jan's books. I actually do have Axis Pistols as well as Whittington's and Buxton's and Marschall's. I am a P38 collector and am just going to sidetrack to get one luger. I was hoping to not need to purchase any more books for just one purchase. Ron's info will help alot, though. Thanks!

Dave, if you read this site, you get a wild smattering of information, a book helps put it together, but there is a ton of info just on this board.
