A few things for my two cents. First I agree with Jason L, some of the info posted was wrong about Luger production. Krieghoff continued production of the P.08 untill 1945 with several surviving examples known in collections in the US. I just purchased a (live because god bless the second ammendment) byf 42 at the Tulsa Arms show that is most def not a re-work. Second I once again agree with Jason L on the notes on what makes a good collectors piece. They may have both been re-done but I would have to have them in my hand to give a %100 on that comment. It hurts to sell those fine weapons mangled like they are, the only way to have them is in working order in my eyes but I know that this is not ok everywhere.
