    Default WWII Luger

    What is the price for a WWII vintage Luger in good condition?

    You sure it’s not a VOPO? Either way around 8K I’d guess if it’s a VOPO and 10+ if it’s genuine WW2

    Most will have WW2 eagles on them. After the war the East German Volkspolizei (VOPO) armed with surplus weapons. Lugers were stripped, refurbished and things like grips replaced and pressed back into service. As a result many parts don’t have matching serial numbers. Just because it’s a VOPO doesn’t mean it’s a shoddy gun. Vratvark on the forum had a beautiful example with waffen marks and all but 1 part had matching serial numbers.

    There are many variations in Lugers which makes them a very much specialized collectors field. There is some info available online as well as a few books. Consulting with a Luger expert may get you in the right direction. The differences between a valuable collectible and a junk gun are not obvious to most of us.

    What are the redeeming features that make Luger pistols so sought after ?

    They are iconic to WW2, a symbol of Nazi and just darn sexy!!
    like the M1911 to the Americans, but the 1911 has stood the test of time were the Luger has become obsolete, but still a very desired and collectable pistol none the less

    WW1 actually. By WW2 they were already dated and supposed to be replaced by the P38, BHP and various others. But there were many still around and it is undeniably sexy.
