    The spring on the hold open is to keep it "down", i.e. prevent it from rising; it is the button on the magazine that raises it to catch the bolt.
    The mag spring being a little weak can cause this...

    I expect that we have New York's Sullivan Law to thank for the deactivation;
    if the owner wanted to keep it in NYC, he had to do something to remain legal(and out of jail). :(

    I've never seen one, but it is possible of course.

    Luger kit "conversion"- no; there would be no point in it as only the sub-cal barrel would be remotely adaptable.

    Yes, you kind of stated that as a question- but seems it got ignored.

    Stated yet another way:
    If 50% of 1914s had unit marks, that is only 10,000 or so; 10,000 is only about 10% of the 1917...

    The answer may be as simple as there were many more 1917 LP08s made than the other years; like 4 or 5 times as many !

    The barrel appears to be "tight", what kikeformad shows is a "short" frame and a shadow.
    Frame length reduced and probably re-numbered to match.

    Why not have it replaced with a very good or excellent old barrel? (I'm assuming your 9mm is the usual 4" bbl., they are readily available.)

    That is not a "safety", Papa's have a grip safety that blocks movement of the trigger.

    One is a pivot, and the other allows removal of the sear bar.
