Availability: Out of stock
2108ku - 10401
9/25/19 - This is an exceptional example of the very well known and highly sought after Luftwaffe Inspected Ku marked Luger rig. This is one of the approx 5,000 that were produced with the Ku suffix, and one of only 2,700 that were produced with '41 date on chamber and 'byf' code on toggle. The pistol is completely matching and original. The grips are Krieghoff-style and in excellent condition. Black Widow style magazine is present and correct for this variation, and the rig has two total. Barrel and receiver are Luftwaffe eagle marked. The finish on the gun rates at about 98%, with only minor high edge wear on muzzle and sideplate, and a couple of thin scratches on the left side of the frame. The bore is excellent but does have minor frost. The rig includes an unmarked tool, and is completed by an exceptional and rare holster with 1944 date and 'cdg' maker mark. Three Luftwaffe inspection stamps and the use of replacement parts and a blue finish that was not as well done as Mauser production are all the classic signs of the Ku luger. There has been more speculation about the origin and circumstances surrounding these Lugers than any other WW2 Variant Luger. The prevailing theory is that they were assembled in very early 1943 for the Luftwaffe out of leftover Mauser parts by an unknown contractor that the code Ku stands for. This has been assumed to be the firm of Adolph Kurschner – Metalwaffenfabrik in Bavaria, but this may never be definitively verified.
