SOLD - Wartime Nazi Luger - Shooter Grade "Black Widow"

1/11/16 - This Luger was made by Mauser in 1942 (BYF 42 marking on top of pistol). Some collectors nickname this style of Luger a "Black Widow". This designation merely refers to the fact that it has black plastic grips and magazine bottom. This variation is very highly sought after by Luger collectors due to the look, and the fact that they are only found in the LAST 2 years of production: 1941 and 1942. This gun is cheaper than most as it has been reblued; although it looks like an old reblue as there is wear over the finish. The gun is ALL matching numbers on all parts including the trigger, the toggle pin, the hold open and the firing pin (These numbered parts are only visible upon disassembly). The exceptions to originality are the magazine, which is post war; and the grips. One grip panel is post war. The other looks to be correct / original but has a few dings and scuffs. The bore is very good to excellent. We grade this gun as "shooter grade" due to the refinished bluing.
