A friend of mine is curious about the possible value of a WW2 era German Luger he has. Don't have a whole lot of info, just that it was brought back from the war by his grandfather.

Thanks

there is a guy on here (P-08?) who posted his collection once, It looked like he had about 40 or more. maybe he can chime in.
ETA: his user name has P-08 in it, but I dont know the exact name.

I'm ignorant on Luger prices...

Just posting to say that if it were me, I'd encourage him to hold on to it. If it's not now, in the future it will be worth much more to him as an heirloom and memento than the money will be. He will regret it if he sells it.

I would guess 800-1000, but I honestly have no factual information to back that up.

Sorry I can't help you with the dollar value but if MY grandfather had brought it back from the war I'd pretty much sum it up as ... priceless... not for sale... look but don't touch... fuck you its mine... get out of my house!

I don't think he wants to sell it, just curious about the value, maybe for insurance reasons. He was recently left a lot of guns after his grandfather's passing and doesn't know anything about them. He says he has one gun from 1888 that he has been told is worth 30-40K. No clue what it is though...

Go to Hastings and check their gun value book...they are not all the same...you need to check all the markings because that influences the price as well as condition...

Yeah, I checked out Lugerforum.com and it looks like there are a lot of possible places and times it could have been made, all of which affect the value. He's going to take a bunch of pics of it this weekend, so we'll see.
