Ponds are a regular place where veterans souveneirs ended up I knew a dealer who had a German built Browning hi power from a pond very corroded, he cleaned it up and used to use it on the range you would never have believed it to look at it.
It is a very nice Luger by the way and staggering it ended up in a pond, imagine what it would be worth now if it were not a relic
Yes, IKnow what you are saying there lustforrust, I own an 1898 service revolver made by Colt, this was dug from France some years ago, this too has been deactivated because it was simply in such good order. There are some great finds still out there im sure......
Yes, even a completely cutaway weapon needs a deac ticket according to the letter of the law.
no doubt about it. its a naval luger.arty ones had the rearsight on the barrel
paul. the 200 is the range. it has 100 and 200 metre sights. as to its history after the first war in 1921 the british goverment was so scared of a communist uprising in britain that they banned firearms and brought in licencing. the troops were told that they would have a better standard of life after they got back from the trenches but of course it never happened. thats why the goverment banned firearms. think about it. all those ex soldiers trained in the use of weapons. alot of the souveniers were therefore dumped or buried. hope this helps
