I have an opportunity to but a German Luger that is suppose to be in excellent shape. What should I look for and check on the pistol before purchasing? The pistol is shootable and comes with 2 mags and a holster, but the holster is not original.

Most important is the year it was made, and if it is 100% matching with the original finish. Becareful theres alot to know about a Luger.

To the best of my knowledge it still has all the markings, and is a matching numbers gun with most of the bluing still in tact.

Bluing is 1 key, but look at the flat spring on the left side of the bolt. It should be a purplish color (nitre blued) and usually the safety will be a straw color (lower temp of nitre bluing). Often times, the lugers that come in have been reblued improperly, thus destroying value. Lugers will have a date code stamped on them. Pre WWII has higher value. Several companies made the Luger. Deutsche Waffen were the highest vale. Walther, Krieghoff and several other companies took production over, I believe, after WWII. Could be wrong on date though. Pre WWII in excellent condition can go as high as $3200 that I've seen.
