    Default 1937 S42 Matching number P08.

    Just bought this, it is a all matching number (damn..every single part, from barrel to magazine ) 1937 S42 p08 from the italian frontline, picked up back in the days from a young guy, and

    made deactivated in the late 80's.

    Would like to know more about it, the meaning of markings ext. This particular luger comes in a strange reddish color, that is kind of unknown to me. Theres is also a V stamped below the serial

    number in the receiver, and a V stamped in the magazine, whats the meaning of this? looking forward for some answers.

    Nice to have a matching numbered piece, very nice indeed. In ref to the red colour I don't really know, I have read that it could be part of a re-blueing process that has not worked correctly but again not really sure. The v should be part of the serial number

    Saw a red one like this recently at my local dealers-a Russian Capture example used by the East Germans.
