Rare Mauser/Interarms
Parabellum Sport Luger Semi-
Automatic Pistol in .30 Luger
with Box - Serial no. 10.005382, 30
Luger cal., 4 1/2 inch slab side bbl., blue/straw finish, walnut grips. Manufactured in the 1970s. The Mauser Parabellum Sport was designed for the European market for use as a competition target pistol. This pistol features a ramped blade sight on top of the heavy slab sided bull barrel with target sights on the toggle, an internally adjustable match trigger, and lacks the grip safety of the standard Parabellum model. Only 63 of these pistols were manufactured by Mauser in .30 Luger making them exceedingly rare among Luger collectors. Includes original box, hang tag, test target, and extra magazine.
CONDITION: Excellent overall, retaining 99% plus original blue finish with limited handling marks and crisp grip checkering. Mechanically excellent. Box is fine with storage and handling marks and splitting in the corners. It would likely be a long time before one found another
one of these rare pistols.
Estimate: 5,000 - 7,000
