    Default P08 chrome plated value

    I have a P08 Chrome plated Mauser made in 1937. s/n range is 7400W range. all matching except for grips and mag. I wanted to know the value of it being a unfired pistol and the value if it has been fired. i know this is no way a $2000 collectors gun. Assuming it functions properly, all parts work and looks good. any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Welcome to the forum.
    What I can tell you is that the plating finish is a typical post-WWII embellishment (99,9% of the Lugers had a blued finish).
    Thus is relegated to the shooter's category. I don't like to do valuations as I do not live in US, but I think people here will say something around US$ 800.00 (if it is in working condition).
    Regards,

    IMO Douglas is very close to actual value at $800. I'm puzzled as to why you ask for an "unfired" value as there's no possible way this pistol hasn't been shot. Even if unfired, the chrome has reduced it to "shooter" status as far as collectors are concerned and the value will be judged accordingly.

    I paid $700 for my nickle-plated, all-matching 1915 DWM. (I have the correct matching grips, but these came from a forum member, and really pimp it out!)

    Every collection should include one. I paid more for mine that most folks, because whoever plated it knew what they were doing ( in my opinion).

    Those grips look strangely familiar

    Being heavily buffed I'd say around $600.

    It won't decrease the value 50 cents if you shoot it !
