Description:

The third year of Mauser Luger production during the build-up to WWII, in 1936 the Germans discarded the letter code system and went back to just stamping the plain date on the chamber. Blade front and notch rear sights, "1936" on the chamber, "S/42" on the toggle link, "droop-wing eagle/63" proofs on the extension and barrel and "eagle" firing proofs on the barrel, extension, and breechblock. Straw finished small parts, niter blue springs, pins and screws, and a blued magazine with alloy base. The grips are unnumbered and the extra magazine is mixed, otherwise parts are matching overall with the "+" marked primary magazine renumbered to match. Includes a "1936" dated Klinge Brothers brown leather holster, the aforementioned extra magazine, and a blued takedown tool. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 80% plus of the original blue finish, showing the start of a brown patina on the gripstraps, bright edge wear, and mild spotting and handling marks overall. 70% of the original straw finish is present on the small parts, and the grips are excellent with some light dings and dark spots. The holster is very good, with some scuffs, cuts and cracking. Mechanically excellent.
