Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

1936 S/42 Luger

#1 Post by onefouralpha » Fri Oct 18, 2019 10:07 pm

This is my first Luger. I've had it about a year now, all matching except the magazines, which are (as near as I can tell) both 1937 manufacture (straight eagle 63 blued, aluminum base). I occasionally browse the web in hopes of finding the original to this pistol-- we all have pipe dreams :)

At some point I'd really like to get an artillery luger, a nice P08 WWI example, a Navy Luger (another pipe dream), and a Swiss 06/24.

Thank you!

I've wanted one since I was a teenager and finally last year decided it was time to make it happen. The fit and finish quality are outstanding! Reminds me of a K31 where you ask yourself "Why is this a standard service weapon?". Absolutely zero perceptible slide wiggle, and it shoots pretty accurately, too. I think my next milsurp purchase will be an 06/24 Swiss Luger. I'm very interested to see how the Swiss manufacture fit/finish compares before they "cheapened" it with the '29 model.
