    That's a nice one, congrats!
    Seeking a 1908 Bulgarian contract Luger magazine (early DWM P.08) with a C suffix. See the example at http://luger.gunboards.com/attachmen...3&d=1414271032 (on the right).

    Also looking for a DWM commercial takedown lever #01 and sideplate #77. Have the following magazines for sale/trade - double-proofed (early) Erfurt #5634a, single-proofed Erfurt #4294d, DWM #3494+, blued fxo / E/37 #5709r, postwar Erma SS w/black plastic bottom.

    I am drooling over the keyboard. Green with envy, indeed.
    Wish I could turn 100 years old in such nice shape.
    Outstanding find! Congratulations!

    Crispy! Nicely done. Wish I had one like that.

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

    I'd be delighted if my 1913 vintage M1911 looked half that good. While it's in good condition, it went through a depot and was parkerized. Just no comparison to the beautiful blue original finish.

    The brushed-blue is a very difficult finish to photograph accurately. I went through several background materials before the mottled green pillow case finally helped to set the correct Colt hue.
