Up for your consideration is a German Luger. This is the P-08 model and comes with one magazine. To be honest I don't know much about these except for what I have read on the net. The numbers appear to be matching to the frame which is a 1723 and all the smaller parts are numbered 23. The top portion has a 42 and the proximal portion of the barrel reads 1939. The magazine is not marked with any numbers and the spring is strong. The wood is in excellent condition and does not have any cracks or rot. Here is the history that I know of this pistol...This belonged to my grandfather who served in the English Army during WW2. He passed away in 1994 and never mentioned anything about the luger while he was alive. He rarely talked about the war or his experiences at that time, however, before I went into the Marine Corps he told me a story of when he was captured by the Germans. It was late in the war and he was on a patrol when he was ambushed and taken prisoner. While being transported he and his fellow soldiers killed the guards and escaped back to England. During the story he made no mention of the luger but I assume that he may have taken it during his escape. I discovered it while finally going through some tools, fishing gear, and cloths. It was wrapped up in a greasy cloth and tucked inside an old wooden box that was stored in the attic. If you have any questions regarding this item then please feel free to contact me. I think that we can consider this a C&R because the manufacture date appears to be 1939.
