    Default G Date P.08 Heer Rig

    Good Evening Fellow Collectors,

    As was started by a good friend and advanced collector, Leo Lavallee, I’d like to continue with the weekly show and tell of a piece from my collection. Now on to Third Reich army so here is the first Luger that I purchased.

    Mauser P.08 G Date S/42 S/N 749f, Subvariation 2. It is not particularly outstanding but it is all matching, except the magazine, and is in decent shape. The grip panels are unnumbered.


    The magazine that came with the pistol is interesting. Numbered 175 f with a droop E/63 but it was stamped twice (once sideways).

    I like to try and find related accoutrement for complete rigs for my collectible pistols. Here is a non-matching droop E/63 “+” extra mag and a droop E/63 stamped tool.

    The holster is maker marked and dated. The maker mark is weak but according to my reference books it is “WILHELM BRAND/HEIDELBERG” and dated 1935. According to Bender the proof should be WaA204. The droop E/WaA20 is discernable. I believe the holster was re-dyed, unfortunately, at some point. I uploaded a larger picture of the holster stamping and proof.
