Value of 42/1940 Luger
I just got my Dec. copy of the NRA's American Rifleman. Please go to the last page(p.92) and view the section called "I have this old gun..." which features a 42/1940 luger, serial
#1913b. The author, S.P.Fjestad of The Blue Book of Gun Values, rates the luger, with a matched mag, at 95%. Incredibly, he asserts a value of $3,500 to $3,750!!! What am I missing here? I can only guess that he must own 4 or 5 of these (and that they're for sale).
"When once a republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil."
