    Default 1937 S/42 (Picture Heavy)

    Some years ago I purchased this Mauser 1937 S/42 Luger. Other than a plain base magazine and unmarked grips that may, or may not, be original, the pistol is 100% matching.

    It's import marked so I'm pretty certain that it's a Russian capture although it's unmarked in any way to confirm that. Likely dip blued although I'm not sure.

    Pictures below.

    Hi Walker,
    The finish looks original to me, what makes you think it was a Russian capture? Apart from that pesky import mark it looks like a pretty nice gun.

    Norm, that, essentially, is the only reason. I'm actually torn between original and dip but I agree with you that it could well be original. I paid $850 for it and the seller tried awfully hard to buy it back when I next saw him. Nope.... not for sale.

    The magazine looks like an original 1941-42 un-marked magazine.

    It is original and in nice condition although it shows a bit of corrosion.
