    Don,
    This magazine would have a 'H' on the spine if the SN would be below 2400. It is very desirable as any other early K-date magazine having an Ö|37 proof stamp. It belongs to the so called 'second variation'.

    Joop,

    Thanks for the additional information. I was beginning to suspect that it is desirable since I seem to get email offers to buy or trade for it every time I post any information on it. For the benefit of others who may be tempted to make me a proposal, I am not at all interested in parting with it. It is part of a very mismatched rig... a police school-marked Luger with no sear safety and a couple of non-matching small parts in a military holster with two mismatched Army mags. But it is what it is --- my late uncle's war souvenir that he taught me to shoot when I was 13. I can't think of anything that would entice me to break it up.
    Best regards,
    Don

    Hello,I had just replied to your K-date data request .
    I have the fancy GERMAN looking S with the 42 on the toggle and
    several other parts.I thought that was gothic.I am wrong.
    The fancy GERMAN looking S is script.
    The rest of the toggle parts have a "S" (just like this one).

    Frank,

    First of all, welcome to this forum. And yes, I am still collecting K-date data, so your first contribution is very welcome too!
    Thank you for presenting your K-date - I will insert its data into the survey list above.
    Congratulations for having a matching magazine! Just for the records, is there a 'H' on the lower spine (the flat long back of the magazine body)?
    The so called Mauser 'hump' is indeed the thicker upper part of the back end of the receiver, see picture 1.b in the introduction above; I understand that your Luger has this.
    Furthermore I understand that you have only one scriptic "S" on the toggle next to /42 - all the others are gothic "S".
    If I got something wrong - please correct me.

    Fast reply!
    I do not see a H on the magazine.
    The toggle looks just like sbv. 2 sn3265 page 17 of Stills
    "THIRD REICH LUGERS".
    I just purchased this gun aweek ago.It looks 97-98%.Very good
    bluing with little silver around front sight ring.
    But the more I read ,it may not be what thought it was.
    The 42 on top has been struck very deep and so has the 1 on
    several parts. I may post pictures in the next few days.

    Frank,

    Thank you for checking the 'H' in the mag.
    I am looking out for your pictures - I could compare the 42 stamp with the four K-dates that I have here. Please take pictures with the macro device on.

    Ronald,

    Thank you for giving the data of your late K-Date.
    You do not mention a magazine though - I presume it is not a K-date.
    SN 411a has been added to the survey above.

    Joop
    I will try to post the pictures of K date #2510 to night.
    I have a bad feeling about this gun,with the way the 42 is
    punched. The inside of the frame ,the sides and
    the top inside frame are very smooth with sharp edges,are in
    the white.
    It seems to have the right markings.After reading the feed back
    on some of these forums ,any thing can be done to fake a collectable
    luger.
    I bought two,this one and a Mauser Banner commercial.The seller
    said they had not been redone.(That's what they all say)
    I think the Banner has been.It looks amost new.I has turned plum
    colored all but 30-40%.The Banner is a 1939.
    I will try to post by 5:00pm EST.11-09-06
    Thanks , FRANK
