1915 WWI Imperial Luger-Military Issue (All Matching), paid $450.

Pics see below:

Took me 3 days and rust-blued it about 10 times to bring out the original color ( because the toggle switch has original rust blue finish), and I had to use my bathroom and hot shower as the humidifying chamber. To get the original imperial luger look, I may need to get certain parts re-strawed, but as of now I am pretty happy with the WWII luger look.

I packed away the original black walnut grips and added new walnut grips.

In original state, the gun only had 10% blue left.

Very nice job, I for one appreciate people restoring the older guns to get them usable again.

Thanks! This pistol is a great shooter... it has some frosting on the bore and some riflings were worn, but it still outshoots any 9mm in my collection, that includes Glock G23, Browning Hi-Power, 92FS, and P38.
