    Any suggestions on where to find a P-08 Luger and what I can expect to pay for it? I want a nice looking one, not something that looks like it was dragged behind a pickup but I don't care about matching numbers or exhibition grade. I just want a shooter grade Luger that I can occasionally shoot without investing my college fund into. Is there a company that specializes in Lugers or manufactures new ones?

    Oh, hey I'm the first poster!

    No replies? Alright, then does anyone own a P 08 Luger and want to give a review on it? Are they worth the money, how do they shoot, will you sell me yours, and so on.

    Hey fuel...
    I own one and love it. The numbers dont match, top section is one number and the bottom is another. Shoots great, feels good in your hand.
    Mine has 1917 on the top, I think this would indicate WWI. Im not sure of the value with non matching parts.

    That's pretty much what I'm looking for. I don't care much about the numbers matching or collectability. I just want a shooter grade, not collector or exhibition grade, luger. Something where I can shoot the snot out of it and not worry about ruining the value. Do you mind telling me approx. what you paid for yours or where you got it?

    Thanks
    Bryan

    Well fuel...
    I was working with a fellow whose father was a gun collector. His father pased away and this young man was selling everything in the collection. Anyway he came to me and ask if I would like to buy a gun for $200.00. And the rest is history.
    It came with an org. holster and two mags.

    Rev, you didn't buy that gun, you stole it! Even a beat up, worn out, ugly Luger will sell for twice that. I don't want to spend more than $600 so I think I need to wait for a deal like yours to come along. That's pretty much how I got my last three.

    Rev, how would you like to sell a gun for $200? :wink:

    Thanks for the link Rev, I'll follow it until the auction is about to end and choose whether to jump on it.

    Interesting topic....just found this site over the weekend, after I bought a .30 cal Luger (1920 commercial) from a local gunsmith....the gun has been refinished, and this helped to bring the cost down. I don't plan on shooting it much (.30 Luger ammo ain't easy to find, and when you do find it...it ain't cheap! :shock: ), but I do want to take it to the range from time to time and shoot it.
    Keep on looking Fuelburns......I've been in the market for several years; finally I found one.
    I hope to get my daughter to take some pics with her digital camera soon; I'll post them when I get some time.

    ive recently taken the P08 plundge having aquired 2 so far,from my research there are alot of variables to take in account when pricing,also as in the K98 world it seems that the crooks have broadened their horizons in humping up P08's,and p38's as well

    as far as shooting,i wasnt impressed in the least with either of the P08's i have (1917 Erfurt,1939 42 code),,,,compaired to my late war P38 the P38 was much nicer in all aspects hands down

    this wont stop me from aquiring more Lugers at all,they are awsome in their own right just from the History stand point

    word of advice,dont buy a Mitchels anything,their K98's,P08's,and P38's are ruined pieces as they have "improoved them",,,lol

    I was looking at getting a SS marked K98 before a friend on another forum warned me away. The prices are sky high on Mitchel's guns too. Not a bad business for them but I consider what they're doing false advertising since they promote the collectability of their guns.

    My Luger is a commercial model. I found it was purchased first in 1976 but its still LNIB. I picked it up last Thursday.

    sweet looking pistol,have you givin it a dance yet?

    as far as Mitchels and false advertising,beleive it or not they were scrubbing Yugo M48's and doing their number on them and passing them off as K98's to those that didnt know any better,criminal if you ask me

    Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. I'll try to get out sometime in February when I can afford ammo.

    I never heard anything about the M48's but I hadn't really been paying attention either. I'm surprised they weren't sued for that. That is clearly intentional misrepresentation of the product. :x
