COLT IS SPF- 

I have two very rare pistols for sale.

First up is a New in the box unfired & unturned 2nd Generation(1964) Colt Single Action Army. Revolver is a Missouri bicentennial with a deep royal blue finish and gold accents 5 1/2” barrel and chambered in 45LC. Only 200 45’s where made which makes it a very rare and desirable colt. Both revolver and box are absolutely mint. $1800 shipped or open to trade offers.

I’LL WORK OUT A SHORT TERM PAYMENT PLAN IF NEEDED !!!!

Is the Luger nickle plated or just polished in the white?

Nice guns

If the Colt was a 357, it would match the NRA 2nd gen that I shoot. Good luck.

The “Rust” marking on the safety of your Luger makes it a  gun produced for the Dutch (“Rust” is “Safe” in Dutch and is only seen on Dutch pistols).  There were several contracts to produce Lugers for the Dutch government and the Dutch East Indies military in the early 20th century.  You would have to do a very careful analysis of the gun’s features and markings to determine exactly which contract it is.  A lot of these were captured by the Japanese during the fall of the Dutch East Indies during WWII.  I am sorry to say that, based on what I have read, the Dutch pistols were not factory nickel plated.  For some reason, a significant number of Lugers brought to the US after WWI and WWII were plated, which unfortunately severely damages their value.

Thank you for this information, it’s very informative and interesting.

As for as the original nickel I’m going by the markings including the word Rust. I know from previous experience anything that’s been nickled the nickeling covers/fills over All the writing. As you see the words are not filled in/over with nickel finish.

I also understand about the value going down if it was. From the blue book this gun in 60% was around $1400, so I figured $2000 was more than fair.

 

Thanks again,

Slick

Slick,

you would have to show that these pistols were produced with a factory nickel finish and that this gun met all the criteria for factory nickel guns to be able to sell it as factory original finish.  The appearance of the nickel is irrelevant if the guns were never produced with a factory

nickel finish. 
 

I am sorry to say that a non-factory nickel finish luger would be rated far below 60% finish and have no collector value.   At best, it would be valued as a shooter.  People have stripped nickel finish from plated Lugers and had them refinished, but this is costly to do right and not generally worth it for most guns because when they are done they are still worth a lot less than a gun with factory finish.  
 

lugers are a very specialized and tricky field of collecting.  People can get in pretty deep if they don’t do their research.

A luger is fun to shoot.  Its ergonomics are similar to the glock.  I didn't know the dutch had some.  I knew a pharmacist who collected them in the 50s and sold them around the late 90s and retired.

Slick are there any markings over the chamber or under the trigger guard.  I sold all my Lugers and Nazi crap when I switched to cowboy.  It is a lot easy to explain to my friends that I like to play cowboy than Nazi!! I still have two or three books on Lugers.  Most nickeled Lugers were GI bring backs from WWII.  I think collector value on that one is gone.  It is strictly a shooter.  But there are always people that like Lugers.

The gun would be popular as a  shooter since it’s a 9mm.  You could submerge it in Hoppes No9 for a long time (months) and see what happens.  The nickel does not look that thick and it does not look like it was polished before it was plated Soaking it in Hoppes for a few months might remove the nickel.  If you were lucky, there might be original finish under there.  In any case, Hoppes wouldn’t hurt the steel.

You guys ain't looking at that Colt.  He's got it priced at a shooter price for a 64 second generation Colt SAA in 45Colt.    Forget about the commemorative details and cut the wire tie and shoot it.  

 

If I had it, I'd strip off the gold plated junk and put it in a Ziplock bag and put it back in the box and put the box somewhere that I can forget.  Replace with blue steel back strap and trigger guard with Pietta parts.  New Colt screws.  Shoot it. 

 

But I'm stocked un Colts right now.

I luv the P-08 Luger.  I have a Mauser BYF 1941 Black Widow that 15 yrs ago they were over $3000 with all matching numbers with mag also..  Mine is in excellent shape and it is a very comfortable gun in your hand and excellent shooter.  I've had this gun for about 30 yrs.

Let me know.  I have a deal in the works to sell some of my stash, and I would like to add a Kraut gun to my stable.  Had one years ago and foolishly let it get away.
