    F in a pentagon is a West German mark on guns that develop less than 5.5 foot pounds of energy,I assume yours is de-activated?

    after an internet hunt i have found they are indeed german deac proof marks
    it seems my luger was a very early german deac ,that was imported to the uk
    and given a uk deac proof and certificate this year
    thanks cheers ian

    Sebastian, S 42 is the manufacturer code for Mauser. It was changed to 42 and then byf towards the end of Luger production. In 1939 the S/42 was changed to 42, and in 1941 to byf. It was am attempt to hide the origin of the Luger production I believe.

    Yes that was the idea Jerry. All armament and ammo bore a three letter code.
