serial #3754k, 9mm, 8" barrel with a fair bore showing a couple of rings of heavy pitting and otherwise strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this 1917-dated pistol retain about 85% arsenal blue showing high edge wear, sideplate and chamber worn and toned to a brown-gray patina, some scattered light pitting mostly limited to the high edges and light freckling. The small parts retain some faint straw color mostly worn to silver with some light freckling and a few scattered pinprick pits. The sear spring, magazine release spring and breechblock pin still retain strong fire blue. The checkered walnut grips are un-numbered and remain in good overall condition with some overall smoothing, light staining, a tiny chip behind the safety and smaller scattered dings. The grip screws show some light slot damage and the left screw appears to be a replacement. This pistol is equipped with late-war normal sights and the tangent sight is numbered "3454". The remaining serialized parts are all matching including the un-grooved firing pin and one bright-bodied wood base magazine numbered 6503 in very good overall condition is included. Overall a very nice artillery Luger for the military collector. (138050-377) {C&R} (1500/2000) SOLD FOR $1,725.00
