    Two thumbs up. A very nice and desirable piece with provenance and a family connection. Keep it in the family

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Nice Pistol-I have one myself however nonmatching as the upper reciever and lower have different numbers and mine is Rumanian I believe-still it's a nice shooter.

    There is a story behind this Luger. Immediately after VE Day GIs were tasked to disarm the civilians in Reutte Austria. These soldiers included my father who was fluent in German. In Ruette he encountered an old woman walking up a street armed with not only this Artillery Luger but also with a Walther P38. Dad disarmed her and retained the two sidearms. Being a 'by the book' guy, he filed the appropriate papers with the US Army for permission to take possession and transport the two pistols to the States. This was granted and I have the documents. The pristine P38 was gifted to my uncle.

    I'm still drooling uncontrollably about this one. Do you have the stock/holster that goes with this?
    I would like to add that the little old lady story just adds to the greatness of this fine piece...
