    Default Navy Marked LP08

    Good evening friends,

    An acquaintance has this LP08 for sale. It has the Naval anchor on the backstrap and a N property number on the front strap. Additionally, it comes with a Naval marked LP08 stock. I could find very little on the Navy having LP08's, could the folks here give advice on the originality of this rig. Thanks in advance.

    I advise that you stay away from it.

    Navy markings on the pistol are bogus; the stock looks like a repro-the disc is not "navy".
    Unless it is at a shooter price, like keoki says- pass it by.

    I never say "never" when it comes to Weimar era modifications/alterations - but this gun and accessories have such unconventional markings that they must be bogus.

    Thanks very much for the advice. I told the gentleman that the markings were unusual. He said his father has had the gun for over 20 years. Guess there's no time frame for fakery.

    Fakery has been abundant since the '70s and before. Used to be easier- before the advent of the 'net and digital pictures.

    I like it. Would definitely put it in my collection, bogus or not.

    Looks like someone tried to poop deck the mizzen mast of their Feldhaubitze but ended up with barnacles on their belaying pin. But I'm not all that nautical, so I could be wrong.

    If it is made after 1918...it is a reproduction.

    Shame about the LP-08...although the photos are dark...it seems like it might be an honest one...other than the grip strap "embellishment".

    If price were really cheap, you could pay a fellow to TIG-weld over the markings and prep and reblue the grip strap.
