**** Reduced ****!!! Consider offers or trades !!! This gun is a rare find in its condition and history. In addition to great condition it has 2 matching mags. !! Two digit 42 Mauser Banner Police Luger Eagle over L. Rated by a Luger collector at 98+%. One of last 300 ordered in 1942 !!. *** I have learned some very interesting Info. !!! *** In the Rock Island April 2013 auction, item # 1503. the identical gun with the exact same serial # 8187Y was put up for sale. The main difference is that it did not have the Eagle/L Police acceptance on the right side or on the 2 mags.It is in the Police order serial # range. It may have been rejected by the police inspector and and a new gun issued with the same serial # which was accepted and has the eagle/L police acceptance stamp which is this luger. This is very perplexing and strange. Owning the pair of these would surely enhance the value of both guns. Email me direct at or call me at 757-714-8778 or 757-966-9535 because my replies thru GB do not always go through***. *** This is one of the finest lugers that I have seen in a long time ***. !!!. This is a scarce two digit date '42' eagle L police luger ***!!!. *** According to some research this was the last Police order in 1942 from Mauser consisting of 300 lugers in the serial # range 7901y-8300y***. The serial # on this one is 8187y. ** Some were with sear safties, some weren't. Some had serial numbered barrels, some didn't. This one has the hole in the frame for a sear safety but none was ever installed **. According to research the factory making sear safties was destroyed earlier by in a bombing raid in 1941. I suppose that they installed what they could come up with. The barrel on this one is not numbered. It is all matching from my inspection. I have not stripped it down because I don't want to chance adding scratches, etc. The collector that I got it from said he had taken it apart once and the internal #s matched. *** ! A local gunsmith/Collector rated it 98%-98%+***!. Whatever number you assign it; it is a beauty and with 2 matching mags, marked 1&2, with eagle L on bases and fxo and P.08 on mag bodies with eagle/37. The frame is marked on left side P.08 and with the Eagle over N. Right side of frame with Eagle L. It has the walnut grips. The pictures that I have do not do it justice but they will have to do for now. *** There were several Banner lugers on the Rock Island Auction Nov.30-Dec.1,2, 2012. One was a 1942 dated Banner with 2 matching mags. There was a '42 code Banner with 2 matching mags ***. FLASH NEWS !!!! " Results from Dec. RIA auction." The 1942 dated eagle/L luger went for $14,950, # 1487. The mauser Banner two digit '42' dated went for $28,750. Both had holsters. *** Don't WAIT TOO LONG.!!! ****. STILL A BARGAIN AT THIS PRICE.!!!! May raise the price again later or send to the RIA auction.a I'm not an FFL dealer.
