    Pre war P08 made by Mauser. Serial numbers a mixture of 2 and 4 digits. I think this makes it 1936, but Luger experts will fire up shortly.

    Ik looks to be an East German reissue. Looking at the grip plates.

    Luger is non matching. S/42 is Mauser. Chambers are from 1936 to 1940.Grips should be walnut. These are probably reproductions. Pistol looks to have been refurbished by the blued over rust spots. A good shooter.

    Agreed with the above comments. The grips are East German replacements, as seen on a lot of deact Lugers in the UK.

    Yes I agree with all that was said earlier.
    Mismatched, refurbished luger. They make a great shooter.
    it appears to have a deact stamp???? Is it Functional????
    A lot of these lugers came out of east block countries after the wall came down.
    The arms dealers made a Fortune on this stuff as the east was starving for cash...
    Just my thoughts...

    An East German (DDR) refurbished example post WW2-when the Soviets started to re establish the local security forces in their bit of occupied Germany, they only allowed them to use assorted old captured weapons-the last production line for German Krieghoff P08 Lugers was in the East and was used to refurbish them-parts were force matched to the frame serial number and new barrels fitted as required-the old wood grips were replaced with plastic and new property marks added-Nazi waffenamts were usually defaced, although mostly just the Swastika bits. Some remained in store in the DDR until the collapse of the regime in 1989.
