Well today was a wonderful day for me!! Today I put 3 very nice and rare guns into my collection, they were my Dads and my sisters and myself drew straws to see who got what from what was left in the collection,,,and this is what I got,,,
I'm sure you can guess I'm quite pleased with my luck in the draw BTW!!!
All of these are matching # and as you can see one of the Luger's is a "American Eagle" Luger,,,,very very rare indeed!!!!
Very well "shot out" of course, but that's to be expected as it was a test firearm for the US military when they they were doing trials for an issue firearm for WW1. If I recall, someone told me there was only 50 ever made for those trials,so it's extremely rare if that's the case. I've only run into 1 other in my traveles so I gather they are rare sense ,,I ALWAYS,, check out Lugers whenever I see them and I've only ever seen 1 other. I love Lugers,,,,
The other one must be at least 85%+++ condition and is a S/42 and all original with real sharp clean rifling and minimal bluing wear, even the mag match's. What a beauty!!
I'm sure Mick will recognize the 280 Ross as it a Canadian made rifle and it's as nice a one as I've ever seen.
SWEAT,,,What a day!!!!! Sooooo,,, without further ado,,here they are,,,,,the new kids on the block,,,,
