Do you have luger? It's fine pistol, the best in world. I have one DWM from 1915 and byf from 1942, they are very accurate.I like the belt and buckle. Sorry, I had to be different. I have one just like it...my uncle brought it back with him from Italy during WWII....he brought home 5 Lugers too.
Thanks for welcome and story, it is interesting.Hi Croatian guy!
I also love Lugers and This is one story:
during the nicaraguan war, many gun-runners came to my country. One of them was offering lugers, complete with hard shells and tool, from a certain arsenal in the eastern europe.
One person of my family receive that offer and called me. At his house was this guy showing a dozen of Lugers. My relative told me "pick the best for me and help this guy to price the rest"
I did chose the best 3, I believe they were byf, saw the good grips didn't match them, and with the permission of the seller, chose matching grips, magazines, holsters and tool.
looking the whole lot I discovered one, a reworked and parkerized one, with non period wood grips, and said "this is the lowest price".
my relative then bought the best 3 (which he still owns) and then gave me the reworked one as a gift, along with 3 byf magazines.
I was very happy, and now, 20 years later, I have the gun.
My luger turned out to be a portuguese 1906 (one in 4000) marked in portuguese (carregada instead of Geladen) but the arsenal reworking stripped it of any colectable value.
Over the years some people have offered me to buy it, but is a good shooter. One guy offered me $120 for every byf magazine but no thanks, they are a souvenir and you cannot sell a gift.
Welcome to the forum
(later that gun-runner brought a P-38, but that is another story)
Wish I did. But I was the younger nephew so my cousins got first dibs on the Lugers...they either sold them dirt cheap or traded them in on some trash gun...very unfortunate...saw a nice one this past weekend for $4,200.00. More than I want to spend. I like the feel of a Luger but its pencil thin barrel is a bit too whippy for my tastes...I will stick with the Walther...Do you have luger?
