    I've been collecting Lugers for a while now and decided to try to display them with some replica medals.
    I still have some shuffling to do.

    Very cool, I like that long barrel one.

    I have a cool co2 replica from around ww2, if I ever find were it's hiding I'll send it to you.

    That's a 1902 Carbine. It has a shoulder stock that goes with it but the stock I have is an aftermarket replica not with the matching serial number. Teddy Roosevelt brought one like it to Africa but I don't think he shot anything with it.

    When I was very young maybe 7-8 a friend of my dad had a very large luger collection, over a 1000. The one in 45acp was very fun from what I remember.

    A .45 American Eagle is worth a fortune now. Maybe close to 100 G's.

    Lol this guy had them in there original cases with paper work. He had a bunch of prototypes even a set that was gifted to Hitler with all the papers.

    He had a story how he got most of them, he was over there during ww2, it involved a fuel truck that was filled to the brim with goodies.

    I don't have good photos of all of them but here's a rundown from left to right, top to bottom:

    1936 s/42 Mauser, 1920's Commercial (Weimar), Swiss 06/29 with red grips and mag. base., 1906 American Eagle, 1916-1920 double date Erfurt police, 1917 artillery (mismatch), 1902 carbine. On the bottom is a Beretta .25 Jetfire that is just filling a spot and a 1910 FN .32 acp, the gun that started WW1 with the killing of Archduke Ferdinand and his wife.

    I’m just as interested in the itty bitty pistol to the right. The Lugers are definitely cool, but that little brass framed deal got my attention. The beretta and FN are also nice.

    The itty bitty is a replica of a Sharps 4-barreled derringer in .22 short.

    I thought that small auto was a Jetfire... I was wondering if it had some sort of WWII-hero provenance to be part of such an amazing display...

    Beautiful stuff there!

    Stay safe.

    Quite interesting collection. Really unique.

    I'm trying to avoid looking at Luger photos, because after a while numerous gun photos actually have a very subversive, seductive effect on my ability to think rationally and resist the "Need".
    You might think that I'm kidding about this. It happened numerous times.

    Very nice! Thank you for sharing. Here are a few that I keep out for reference, but most stay in the drawers of an old flat file or ammo boxes in one of the safes.

    Very nice collection indeed. I always like people who collect with a plan or a theme. I have been in the market for a Luger with long barrel and this rekindled my interest.

    Let me toss this Luger there, it sold recently on GB

    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/877416754

    So with that caliber this has to be a commercial pistol that was brought into the Weimar government and a police issue..

    Has anyone else saw commercial lugers marked 1920 like this??

    You are correct. This was a double-date Weimar pistol that went to the German police. Someone replaced the barrel and ground down the front sight. It also has an aftermarket magazine. The price is fair for a 'shooter' that has no collector's value.

    Many thanks.. Yeah it has been worked over a little... You know like Rocky after the fight... But my main question is was this common for commercial Lugers to go into the Weimar inventory like that.

    And not to turn this into an ugly fight, But I have seen many guns over the years with no collectors value get collected... (true story) :)
