Hello everyone. I picked up this non firing long barreled Luger? with stock at a yardsale a little while ago for 45 bucks. The guy I bought it from didn't know anything about it he found it in his dad's barn after he passed away. I've been trying to do some research on it but I keep coming up short. The only markings on it are 04-79 with SMG under it on the right side. A faint MGC on the left side and top. Does anybody know anything about these? Is it a real one or just a reproduction any information would be grate. I do have the trigger and a few other pieces to it I would eventualy like to get it shooting again. Thanks
Yeah I looked up the Artillery Luger when I first got the gun but it didnt really look like it. If you compare the stocks mine kinda looks like it was cut off a small 22 maybe. The stock doesnt really fit too well it kinda wiggles around and I havent figured out how to detach it yet. I really don't know how long the barrel is I haven't measured it but 16 inches sounds about right. I'll take it to the gun shop I go to and have the gunsmith look at it. If it's not too expensive to get working again I'd like to I think it would be pretty neet to take to the range. Thanks for your help.

An MGC gun was made in Japan, and would fire special blank cartridges, if you could find them and reload them. It is a "replica", not a gun that would ever fire live ammo. Still, if you can restore it, it would be worth maybe $200-$300 to a "non-gun" collector. It is still a hell of a wallhanger for $45!
