A 45ACP Luger!!!


I want it SO bad!!!


I'll settle for an artillery or Swiss Trial 9mm Luger, I actually got blocked out of a Swiss Trial Luger on Hermann Historica, sooooooo close.


I kind of like the "round count" window Lugers too.

You might have to settle for one of the modern repros, because of the three made in 1907, one got tested to destruction, one is in private hands and last sold for half a million, and the one shown, which is in the Norton museum in Shreveport.

A renowned German manufacturer is also making the P06 in .45 ACP and the company that had made the special run that was Krieghoff branded is thinking about making a batch, too. The owners of those two companies are also prominent German Luger collectors.

Blued polish P38s are nice. The further you get on in the war, the lower the quality and finish got. I have a 0 series, 3rd version pistol that is super nice. The AC series were right after and they are nice Walther produced pistols.

It all depends. I paid 1000 for a GI 1911 last month from CMP that was a rebuild mixmaster. Worth every penny to me. Value of a collectible is a funny thing; if somebody wants it...

Stopped by to take a couple pics at it from outside the case. The holster goes with it but no one was available at the time when I stopped by to get any closer.

I guess you can still have a closer look when you go back next year ...

I like to image that somewhere in Russia there remains a warehouse or two loaded to the rafters with all manner of WWII German small arms.

Although priced a bit on the high side, it is an AC40, high polished blued P.38. All small parts are stamped and of course all major parts are matching as they should.

I would estimate a $2400 to $2600 price rather than what they have marked, but everything there and Gander Mountain is overpriced to begin with. Only a fool would part with their money at either establishment.

They probably gave the poor schmuck who traded it at best, $800.

I got lucky with my first P5 purchase from Cabala's Ft Worth last July (one year ago today in fact). An appears NIB with all items from Ulm included example. Just entered the 4 figure price range out the door. Sub 1" test target was a pleasant surprise.


The Cabala's Gun Library at the time showed another location having "well worn (inside and out)" BMI lineout (police trade), priced at $1400.00


This is the gun that started my P5 addiction.
