Please forgive my ignorance and what will surely be insufficient information, but I know next to nothing about Luger pistols. A friend of mine called me today asking what a 1942 Luger would be worth. He said it was in pristine condition. I told him I had no idea but that I'd try to find out. I can't offer any more than this since I've never actually laid eyes on the piece. I'm sure there are lots of variables involved, but assuming it's a pretty-much run of the mill piece, which is likely because it was a war trophy that has been in the family a long time, what would be an estimate of it's value? Any help would be much appreciated!
, tell them all the markings on it and take lots of pics, put it in the New Collectors forum.....
So it's a byf 42? Does it have the black plastic grips and mag bottoms? And are they in good shape? A minty "Black Widow" should bring in the $2,000 + range. I would need to see good pictures to tell for sure. Make sure that he does not fire this gun especially if it is all matching numbers.
A WW2 bring-back will normally
bring in the neighborhood of $1500-2000. This is excepting some models as they discuss above.
Thanks guys, and I'll try to get more info. I should get the opportunity to look at it in person this weekend.
