serial #79, 30 Luger, 4 3/4" "pencil" barrel with a bright about excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain perhaps 97% original blue, the loss due to fading on the triggerguard, wear on the bottom of the frontstrap and light operational wear on the receiver. The straw parts retain a strong straw temper, including the extractor and toggle lock, with the takedown lever and trigger showing minor pinprick pitting and fading on the front edges. There is still vibrant pale fire temper blue remaining on the breech block pin, coupling link pin, rear connecting pin and sear bar spring. The toggle is marked DWM, the chamber is marked with a Swiss Cross Sunburst and all of the visible numbered parts are matching with the exception of the un-grooved firing pin which is not numbered. The checkered walnut grips rate excellent with one spot of flattening on each panel and they are stamp-numbered to the gun on their interior. Included is a single bright-bodied magazine, with a correctly un-marked wooden base and metallic inserts in the machined finger grasps, which rates about excellent overall with minor operational wear. Included with this early model Luger is a tan leather holster marked "L.G. Walther/Sattler Bern 06" on the back with a "Swiss cross" proof stamp inside the flap. This holster rates about excellent with only minor scrapes, scuffs and handling marks and minor wear where the flap and closure strap contact the body of the holster and minor spots of verdigris where the metal parts meet the leather. The closure strap is intact, the seam stitching remains intact around its periphery, the D-rings are present and intact on both sides and the accompanying leather shoulder strap is also included with buckle, keeper and metal clips intact as well. Included with this holster is a second bright-bodied magazine, with a correctly un-marked wooden base and metallic inserts in the machined finger grasps. which rates about excellent overall with perhaps minor operational wear. Overall an excellent opportunity to own a rare early model Swiss Luger with a double digit serial number and accompanying holster rig. (218400-4) {C&R} (4000/6000) SOLD FOR $6,900.00
