I was able to put a deal together today and picked up this Luger in a trade+cash deal.

It's pretty much your standard 1920 Police Luger, except it somehow managed to have never received the Police safety modification. The serial number is in the "a" block and it is my understanding that it is uncommon to see one that hasn't had it done.

It has all matching numbers, with the exception of the magazine and has a perfect bore. It came with three Mecgar Luger magazines as well as the WWII magazine that is in it.

The front of the grip strap is marked "S.B.9. which according to my research means it was issued to the Schutzpolizei in the middle region of Berlin 1920-1932 and is pistol #9.









Fits between the 1916 DWM LP08 and the 1937 S/42.

Nice set of Lugers, they are great shooting pistols.

Here’s one of mine

Neat!
I've always wanted a Luger, even if it was just a mismatched shooter.
It always seems that I just missed them or they were priced like platinum moon dust.

Here’s mine/ my son’s. Complete with military holster and original magazine- oops,I’m sorry ,clip- a little levity there. Functions well but, like the 1911’s, has poor sights. OTH, when you’re down to your pistol, things are pretty tense!

The Luger and the Broomhandle Mauser pistols are two we would love to find and own but the costs of those we have seen in this area...

I really wish that I had had the money back in the late 1980s, when I was in SoCal in the Marines - I went to a couple of gun shows and there were a lot of Lugers & Mauser C96s for sale - at what was even then reasonable prices (~$350-400 for the Lugers, ~500-600 for the Mausers - including a couple with the rifle stocks & snail magazines!).

I wanted one of each, but had other priorities... darn it!
