My 1911 Erfurt Luger has arrived. And a surprise walked into the shop

Article about: BTW I also need to invest in a Erfurt luger

    Default My 1911 Erfurt Luger has arrived. And a surprise walked into the shop

    My 1911 Erfurt has arrived. It is all matching except for the magazine. It is unmarked. This was the first production year for Erfurt and 10000 were produced. This gun is SR# 6664 with no letter code. It is about 80% finnish in my opinion. Not too bad for a 102 year old pistol. As you will notice it doesnot have a stock lug on the back of the grip. These were not added till mid 1913 on these Erfurts. If you look during this period most lugers are DWM's. Don't get me wrong Erfurt made a lot of lugers, but they seem to be the harder ones to find these days.

    On Another note. A DWM 1915 Artillery luger walked into the shop today. It is also 80% finnish with all the straw parts. It is complete and original. From what I can find out, not many 1915 Artilleries were produced in 1915, thus making this a rare pistol.

    Nice. Artillery models are tough to come by. Am sure they are bringing a premium today.

    I don't mind telling you as they will never be for sale again.
    The 1911 was 931.00 A bargin as these when encountered are about 1800.00 on up. They are rare. The DWM 1915 Artillery luger was 1300.00. These usually are 2000.00 for poor ones to many thousands for nice ones. I sometimes get lucky. I have decided to add to my WWI era lugers in my collection. Starting with Erfurts. I already have a 1912. The 100th Anniversary of the start of WWI is next year. I think the prices of these Sleeper lugers will sky rocket in a few years. Nazi lugers bring more money these days. By the way. Both of these lugers have all matching numbers.

    I'm not the OP, but I paid $3k for my artillery Luger. Depending on the year, condition, matching/mismatching, etc... they can run the gamut from around $1300 to $4000, even without the accessories.
