Picked this up last week at the local gun show from a friend there. It's a 1937 Kreighoff Luger, marked with Luftwaffe stamps. All the numbers match up (except that somewhere along the line, its bolt hold-open went missing and someone swapped out the original brown grips for the WWII Mauser "Black Widow" grips- but I'm in the process of trading around on a correct set of grips and looking for a correct hold-open) It's got some wear on it, but if it could talk I'd wager it could probably tell some stories. Unfortunately, I wouldn't understand them as I don't speak German- but it would be interesting nonetheless (not to mention the novelty of having a talking Luger! MCORPS1 ) Anyway, here it is:

A friend of mine had one that was "found" after WW2 in a bathroom in Germany. His dad got it from a buddy right after the war. It is in pristine condition. He did have the original holster and belt, but he lost it. I helped him sell it a few years ago. It brought a pretty penny and I made sure it went to a good home. I am not a Luger expert so it may not have been the same as this one.
Looks very nice!!! Thanks for sharing.

Very nice Luger. One of the most valuable handguns in the world is a Luger with the initials AH on the stocks. Guess who that one originally belonged to? Easy right? Adolf Hitler.

Very nice Luger!! I have a 1939 S/42 that one of my uncles picked up in WWII. It came with a holster that most folks that I've shown it to say is a cut down 1911 holster. Dunno. I did pick up the correct holster for it several years ago. It was a police gun as I remember.
