Martin, very hard with the condition but probably a ground dug luger with replacement grips and what looks like brass screws to hold the grips on
Im surprised the damn clip and everything else isn't frozen shut/stuck. That baby is corroded
Buy it and use it in your Nazi zombie display.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
if you don't mind me asking. Where did you get this luger??? It does have replacement grips on it as Ben said.
I an very surprised it still opens. It may be worth having as a Conversation Piece. I would not give very much for it. Anything over 100.00 is too much in my opinion.
just my opinion.
I specialize in M1 carbines and Lugers.
It reminds me of a Luger my late friend and dealer - Stan Dobson had. His came out of a drain at Spandau Prison. Although the metal was heavily corroded the barrel and rifling was in excellent shape!
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
Thanks Ben! So do you think that the grips are replaced from the other piece and brass screws are new?
I still havent bought him.. I just got offer from the dealer who found it near the road where axis tried to reach US area to give up. He restored him but to be honest I am not sure if such corrosion can be made artificially on some replica too? Btw, he asked for more then 200 USD ;-)
