    Default S/42 1937 for review

    I traded into this a while back, came with the gun, holster, repro holster, 2 repro mags, takedown tool, original baseplate and what Im guessing is an original mag. I wanted a mixmaster shooter, but since Im only into this about $700 Im not complaining. Also would like a current value for insurance purposes. Thanks guys

    nice looking pistol. More of a collectible than a shooter in my opinion....Bill

    The side plate is unnumbered and therefore not original to the gun. The S-link and safety tab appear to be blued but should be in the white. I think the gun has been refinished.

    David is correct...Luger has been re-blued...S-link and safety bar are blued...

    Third Reich era shooter Luger pistols in good condition are $1,000-1,200 these days.

    It is a first variation 1937 S/42 with a "q" suffix. These would have strawed small parts but as they are blued on this gun it is more evidence of a reblue.

    The sideplate does not appear to be numbered, which is incorrect. Should be an excellent shooter at a good price. Just not a collectible one except as a shooter. Bill

    Thanks guys, I'll try to get some pics in the sun today. It was raining yestrrday when I did these. The blue is not nearly as deep as it looks in the pics, so it was probably redone a while ago.
