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 nickel-finished magazine with alloy base. Minus the unnumbered grips and magazine, numbers are matching overall. Includes a "1936" dated brown leather holster, marked "WaA387" and "6976" on the back. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 95% of the original blue finish, showing the start of a brown patina on the gripstraps, mild edge wear and light handling marks overall. The small parts show 85% of the original straw and niter blue finishes, with a brown patina on the grip screws and the start of a gray patina on the straw components. The grips are very fine, with a crack forming in the right panel and mild dings overall. The holster is good, with cracks and scuffs appropriate to age and use. Mechanically excellent.
