    ok the germany stamp was required after 1912, part of the import restriction, lots of post WW1 german firearms have this stamp
    nice pistol! real artillery Lugers go for a good buck, do the mags match, does it have the original holster

    I am a member over at Jan still's Luger site artilleries are not my specialty so ask your question there, they love helping new folks

    so for god sake don't clean it make it look pretty or shoot it, Jan still is the leading authority, they may want clearer pictures

    Thanks for the redirect, Sprat.

    To my knowledge the holster in the picture is the same holster she remembers with it when she was 9 yo (mid 50's now). There is only one mag with it and I tried to get a pic of the serial # on the bottom but those came out blurred.

    I learned something new. Always look for pre-68 non importers stamped but wasn't aware of post 1912 germany stamp and figured it to be commercial thing, Stoger or VLD imports. Thanks for the info.

    Oh that's nice! I wish I had one. My father was asked by his boss in the early 60's if he would take a crate of lugers made for Sweden and try to sell them for $35-40 ea. Dad said he wanted one but that was a weeks pay. This one went for $3499!http://www.gunsamerica.com/962970889...Luger_7_65.htm

    the germany stamp was due with import regulation applied by american importers, it was heavily discussed recently on jan stills luger forum, this practice ceased at the start of WW2

    again the venue is the site above they are the guys forget old books

    JRS I looked for your post, also that holster is beat up but the luger holster repair guy jerry Burney can repair and replace missing parts

    the answers are to be found on that site
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.
