I seldom post here, but I have a real mystery; at least so far.....
This luger has what appears to be 'decimal points' on most of the small parts.
I have not determined how or why these are present.
Do you know what this is all about? I have shown this to some pretty knowledgeable collectors, and no one knows for sure, yet.
Rumor says that it might be for export identification, but the frame serial numbers do not have this marking.
Others say in might be for replacement parts, but this isn't common for that use, either, as far as I know.
this is stamped as a 1940 byf.
There is a small '42' stamp in the rear toggle link, as shown.
Any advice would be helpful.
Thanks in advance
