John, can you provide more information?

Can you tell us any other markings on the gun?

Proofs? Tell us what and where proofs and markings are located.

What serial number is on the gun? To include any letters next to or under the serial number?

What year or letters are stamped on the top of the receiver?

Can you provide pictures, to include side, top, etc?

Welcome to the forum!

Also, it is fairly rare to have a complete mag disconnetc, many times they are "mostly" there, but if you take a magazine out, does it still click?

I'd be interested in hearing how much you wanted for it, or for possible trades besides a G or K43???

PS. No it dosent click when the clip is out. (put another clip in to try it)
I may be wrong, however, some confusion may exist. The pistol must be "cocked" before it will "click" when you pull the trigger. If you pull back the slide, arm or "cock" the pistol, then remove the magazine, lower the toggle mechanism and pull the trigger, you should not hear the firing pin release (click) if the magazine safety is still intact.

Re your question on correct mag, the wooden bottom should not be on the haenel magazine spine. This is incorrect as the wooden base has the + sign to indicate the second magazine in army fashion.Your spine or magazine body is a police issue.



Haenel extruded magazine body with blued steel and a aluminum pinned bottom 122 code eagle over 37 on the spine is more period correct ,commonly referred as a type 3 army magazine, also depending on the letter suffix of your luger a type two army magazine with blued steel crimped tube with aluminum base would also be correct for your luger.

Your luger would be more approprietly placed in the police category and would thus have either the army type two or three body with police marked magazine base again depending on the suffix letter being an early one to be a type two magazine and possesing a aluminum police marked base.

Next is the all police marked magazines which would be appropriate if your luger was a banner luger which it is not.

With this in mind any magazine would be okay for the luger as unless you possess the original matching magazine the magazines were swapped around so often that a working magazine was the only requirement of the carrier of the luger during the war years.

The spring should also be of the zig zag type. The one you have is possibly a coiled spring as the wooden magazine bottom should be milled for the round coiled spring.

Identifying the correct magazine for the luger is at times as complexing as the luger itself unless one is well versed in the wide variety of magazines produced.

I hope that you are not to confused with my post and reread it again to understand what I am trying to explain to you.

Posted - 08/28/2004 : 12:04:49 PM Lugerlou, is what you are saying, is that the wooden bottom was put on the mag? Crank

What I am saying is that anything is possible in the mix and tumble of magazines, your question dealt with " is this the proper magazine for my luger" my post stated that the magazine in your last picture is incorrect for the era in which your luger was produced.

Posted - 08/22/2004 : 5:12:02 PM Would this be the correct mag for this?schmisser,(haenel)inside an arrow?it is stainless, with wooden bottom. crank







As to who put the wooden bottom on the magazine, that is only known by the person that placed it there. Albeit my experience has taught me that the body shown in your picture is more commonly found with a aluminum base and a coiled spring.
