    This looks like a Refurbished navy long barrel. The Artillery model has an adjustable sight on the rear of the barrel and an adjustable front sight. Looks like an S/42 re-barrel. It has Definitely been re-blued. It does look like the work was done in this century, So with that said. In my opinion this luger was redone and re-barreled with in the last 20 years. Ben is there any markings under the barrel?
    Hope this helps,

    You are right Guns I missed that the art barrell does have a adjustable sight the Navy barrels did not. I didn't notice it at first. timothy

    The barrel is a post WWI 8" commercial barrel not an artillery barrel.
    Mauser made LP08's in 1936/1937 for the Persian and Siamese contracts.

    If it was cheap enough, it is not imo, I would consider buying it as a shooter. But since that is a problem in the UK I wouldn't consider it. I agree with all the other posters heavily reworked and reblued. When, no way to tell for sure. As others have said an Artillery Luger should have a tangent curve rear sight on the rear of the barrel and a small notch where the rear site rests on the front of the receiver. This one doesn't so taking everything into consideration a rebarreled S/42 WW II era pistol.

    Thank you we came to the conclusion it wasn't a art barrel lack of adjustable rear sight. some long barrels were contracts for other countries most I have saw have that country's proof on it somewhere grips may indeed be a replacement still a nice pistol that will go well with his rig. timothy
