Item No.: 8309 Price : SOLD
Description :
Here is an original, German 1923 P.08 Commercial Luger Pistol manufactured by Deutsche Waffen-und Munitionsfabriken. Known as a "Safe & Loaded" Commercial Model, it is marked "SAFE" in English rather than the usual German "Gesichert". The word "GERMANY" is stamped beneath the serial number on the front of the frame. These were intended to be exported to England and the United States. They are chambered for the 7.65mm Parabellum cartridge (.30 Luger). Only about 2,000 were produced. This pistol is in fine condition with about 90-95% of its factory blued finish remaining. There is a touch of wear at the muzzle and at the top of the frame. This area on the frame is just beginning to turn plum brown. The grip straps also exhibit a lttle brown color. The trigger and associated parts retain most of their straw color. The bore and mechanics are excellent. The grips are very fine with no chips or cracks. There are a few very tiny dings on the checkering. The gun appears to be all matching except the magazine, which is a military replacement. Not as many parts were numbered on the commercial Lugers as on the military ones. The pistol has commercial Crown over "N" proofs. This is a very nice pre-WWII Commercial Luger. Stock no. 15156
