..ah shucks..
« on: March 09, 2018, 01:00:43 PM »

was in town, at a place that sells yard equipment (dropped off my leaf blower for a tune up) and they've got a small gun shop, so I browsed.....

noticed a Luger and asked about it since I've never seen one for sale in a gun shop before - a 1942 9mm and was on consignment

the bad :  someone had it chrome plated   :thumbsdown:  in my opinion the Historical Value of the piece went out the window when whoever-it-was did that

I personally wouldn't own it - even as a "shooter"

that is shameful. i have never had the opportunity to shoot a Luger, but i have always liked the looks of them. they are very nice looking pistol.

but i wonder, how hard would it be to have the chrome removed? is it even possible to remove the chrome without doing further damage to the pistol?

i agree. the value tanked after they had it chrome plated. actual monetary value, and historical value. shameful. some people should never be allowed to mess with guns!

yep, a shame

I'm getting "hot" again for a Luger and have been continuing my "looking" - guess I'll eventually find the perfect example for me :

I submitted an offer for the DWM .30 Luger (which is on consignment) and it was passed along to the consignor - haven't heard from him as yet
