Nothing technical. They are very well made, accurate and reliable with ball ammo. That's it.

Please send it back to its rightful owner.

I think they are just mucous that have gellified....and been ejected from a nostril.

Heard they are not forgiving of weak commercial ammo like Win White Box. I love the design, but I'm not rich enough to get guns due solely to the 'neat' factor.

Hannah Reich was a member that was a luger collector.

From what I gather, it is a standard WW1 Luger. Pictures are not so good.... Erfort was one of the govenment arsenals making them.

Mine is a 1920 Commercial model. I recall I bought it for under 300 in 30 luger, as the rifling was so faint. Bought it to rebarrel, but it is waaaay to accurate to touch.

I have a 1918 Erfurt with all matching serials (except firing pin and magazine) and no import stamps or Nazi symbols which, according to the web, means it was a WWI military bring home. The finish is worn but ok. Its shoots best with Winchester 115 grain ammo but jams like hell on everything else I've tried. With the Winchester, it will go 4 or 5 magazines without a stovepipe jam so it is far from reliable. It is, however, accurate as hell and fun to shoot. I have been meaning to get it looked at but want to find someone that won't do anything to devalue it. If anyone knows more, please post.

Of course I gues it comes down to they are worth whatever the owner is willing to take, and the buyer is willing to pay, maybe I will one day find someone willing to part with a shooter for the $300-400 I am willing to pay.

I see the guys at Gunshows with a table of these things, but they are always priced in the 4 digits, so it's not even worth looking at them.

A Luger is like a damn good looking high maintenance woman. They are expensive and know they are worth it, very particular about what makes them function, and are difficult to put up with. I've had three and kept one. I took a financial ass whipping on all three. The one I kept I have right at $1200 in and I don't shoot it exactly because of that reason. But it looks good.
