just got back from local gun shop looking for p.38's no luck. They do however have a luger 1917 DWM in not real good condition all numbers match probably about 75%, proper mag with a replaced wood bottom, holster is in fairly good shape no loading tool the pouch looks good no rips or tears in stitching holster is marked N BURGHARD under that PASING AND UNDER THAT 1918 when making a purchase i always look at the sum of the parts and here comes the question i always hate to see any idea as to the worth of the holster? they are asking $500 for the whole rig so what should i do? around here any matching shooter is worth at least $400

Dear Frank:

I am not able to give you much advise on your question as is this Luger & holster worth the $500.00. However, if you are looking for a shooter and holster is in reasonable good shape, I would go for it.

I once purchased a 1940 Luger in somewhat of the same condition you described. To my surprise, the rifling was awful. I was new to guns and was not aware of what a poor bore truly meant. When I fired it the bullets would keyhole or tumble.

Make sure the rifling is decent cause I can assure you it is not a pleasant sight to see the complete bullet outline on your target. Not to mention the razing I received from my shooting buddies.

In the local wantadd paper, I recently picked up a 95% or better 1915 DWM Luger with non matching wood bottom magazine for $600.00.

Good luck.

George
