    Default byf 41 Close but no ciger.

    I've owned this pistol for awhile now. Cant remember if I ever posted it? Anyway, I was on an auction site and for the heck of it decided to do a search for Luger magazines. (You never know) Haven't done that for a very long time. I spotted one that the number looked familiar. Went to check my safe and "WOW" Almost a match! Darn...close but just two numbers off. Still had to have it. And I caught it with only 5 hours left. Luckily the auction was reasonably priced and not one of those crazy priced "buy it now" auctions.

    Hey Bob...nice catch, w/a little luck involved...

    I was lucky this way also w/a 1937 1st. variation Mauser...same letter suffix letter "t", and just like you, only two numbers off...!!!

    I guess having it two numbers off, is better than having it only one number off...that would be TOO PAINFUL...Lol...!!!

    Good for you...!!!

    I have a 1940-42 with a one off magazine and a two off magazine. Odd things can happen when collecting Lugers!
