serial #384, 9mm, 4" barrel with a fair bore showing moderate oxidation and good rifling throughout. This very rare 1925-dated Simson has unfortunately seen a rather hard life and retains about 92% hastily reapplied blue showing some scattered areas toning to plum patina, small dings and moderate cleaned pitting underneath the blue. The checkered walnut grips are stamp-numbered to the gun along with visible "(Eagle) / 6" proofs and remain in about good overall condition having darkened significantly from the years and showing moderate overall smoothing, areas of compressed points and small dings. The breechblock has a number of small chips, one on the bottom edge and one on either side of the extractor and the ejector is missing. Most of the markings are still quite visible despite the metal preparation, all of the serialized parts including the grooved firing pin are matching and are appropriately stamped with Simson's "(Eagle) / 6" proof mark throughout. One reproduction magazine is included and the mechanism still seems to function well mechanically. A solid "example" piece of these Weimar-produced Luger pistols.
