    Default P.08 Erfurt 1916 rig, 2 matching mags

    In the process of picking this up. Out of the woodwork, been in a trunk from the vet, with the same family since it was brought back. Unmessed with, 100% matched, two matching mags, tool, 1916 holster named to Johann Muller, with a unit which may be a MG kompanie. A Johann Muller is listed as KIA in October 1918 on the Western Front and buried in a war grave. Had air rust and the bore had dust bunnies and residue, but cleaned to a mirror.

    WOW! Can you get any of the other items in the trunk to go with it?

    Thanks. That's the extent of my reach into the trunk.

    "Johann Muller", but is it THE Johann Muller who had this pistol? There is only one "Johann Muller" listed in all of the German war graves registry for WW1 and WW2:

    Very odd only one Johann Muller appears - that name is in the "John Smith" category in Germany I would think...

    Awesome score. What site are you using to search for German KIA? I have a Luger rig as well that is named and haven't been able to find anything.

    Very nice rig. That's about the only way a ww1 Luger is worth anything it seems....with provenance and/or 2 matching mags. As you probably know Johann Müller was a very common german name, basically akin to John Miller. May be a leap to say it's that guy, then again it could be
