serial #6238, 9mm, 8" barrel with a very good plus bore showing some very light oxidation mostly toward the breech and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this 1916-dated pistol retain about 92% arsenal blue showing some high edge wear more prominent on the sideplate, some operational wear, thinning on the grip frame and scattered freckling. There is some very fine pinprick pitting scattered throughout and particularly along the barrel that is underneath the blue but the finish is almost certainly arsenal quality. The small parts retain some faint straw color but have mostly worn to silver with some light freckling. The grip screws retain some strong remnants of fire blue while the color on the sear spring and magazine release is vibrant. The checkered walnut grips remain in very good plus condition showing some small dings, tiny chips and handling marks. The right panel is stamp-numbered to the gun and the left is an un-numbered probably period replacement. Both front and rear sights are finely adjustable and all of the serialized parts are matching including the un-grooved firing pin and parts of the tangent sight. Included is one bright-bodied wood base magazine with some light oxidation on the body and numbered 1494l with a "+". A really very nice Artillery Luger overall. (138050-378) {C&R} (1500/2500) SOLD FOR $1,955.00
