    Welcome to the forum.
    The tuition at Luger University can be expensive. If your new acquisition functions well you will have a great shooter Luger. You also have a good learning piece. I would guess someone had that unit marked frame and wanted to make a "collectable" piece. Several things to note. The lack of frame proofs, tthe concious grindin off of the frame number while leaving he "l" portion in place, the 22 on the side plate is the wrong font. This was a conscious effort at a fake. Also, the proof mark on the side of the trigger usually means it is an Erfurt part, not a DWM.
    As a shooter, it should be great fun. Do not use +P ammo. They are amazing shooters.
    regards, heinz

    The holster is an uncommon maker and attractive to collectors except for one thing--the stitching is all dark as is the interior of the holster. This suggests the holster has been dip-dyed and has lost its original finish. This makes it a filler for a collector. The tool should have value if it is a pre-45 tool.

    Does the loading tool have any proof?

    The Erfurt proof or inspection stamp on triggers is high up on the right side as in the picture below. That one is low and on the left side. While I'm not sure what it actually is, I don't think it's Erfurt.

    Guy's Thanks one more time you all have been very helpful with the info on my luger. The take down tool is marked 42. I will tell you I am not disappointed with the news. I have a "LUGER" and now can't wait to rap a couple off at the range. The value fell a little short but not bad. I still have a "LUGER" and it will stay with me a long time. I will let you all know how it shoots. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Paul

    Given the craziness currently swamping the market, getting one at all is good! About the only thing left in military surplus at a nearby LGS was a Polish TT33 and that was probably because it fires an obscure cartridge. Everything else gone, I thought they were going out of business! Enjoy it!

    Stick with the Winchester "white box" 9m/m ammo and you will get a lot of attention at the range.
    And be careful: Lugers are addictive.

    Hello again, Went to the range today, you will have to pry this LUGER out of my dead hands. This weapon shot flawlessly, one of the best guns I ever shot. To me it is worth every penny. Used Geco 124gr. fmj ammo, not one hiccup in 50 rounds. Addictive is the correct word. First 7 rounds 2" groups 7 yards. First time shooting a luger and this gun.
