    Only lists two as having a matching magazine.. doesn't discuss condition or whether or not all the guns have matching metal / grips. Usually one gets a discount when buying in bulk. I'd expect the price to be half what it is, if not less. Maybe if he sits on it for another 20 years it will be worth that?
    This is a piece that will be of extreme interest to any serious German Rifle collector.

    Yeah, I kinda figured he is a crack smoker with that price, probably just seeing if anyone is dumb enough to bite...I figured there is no way they are worth $4,800 each...

    Thats why I posted it here, sanity check...

    Even if they all were all matching including magazines, the price is insane per pistol.

    I do the same thing brother. Don't sweat it. Sometimes a sanity check is good. That bleached blonde thing that just sold for almost $5k

    Even when considering the price would be fair for each pistol: there are very few collectors out there that have $ 145k spare (and atop are specifically interested in Lugers). And those collectors that could invest this kind of money, well they usually have these pistols already. So either he might luck into someone dumb, or he will keep them.

    Cool

    My mistake the metal case may be WWII correct, at least for P38’s.

    I know the Polish made a wooden copy of this metal chest for their version of the TT33’s.
    I ordered one thinking it would be a cool way to store and display my TT33 and variation collection. However when I received my crate it was the elongated Soviet version. Problem with crates is I always need to fill them....K98, SVT40, Mosin Nagant, SKS, VZ24 etc.

    However, maybe this guy is aware of some weird calculation that multiplies the value of a Milsup if placed into a crate? Just maybe my TT’s are now magically worth 1k each....

    Perhaps a collector who is throwing out a price and seeing what happens. As stated above someone with too much money may surprise him.

    The case just doesn't look like a German design to me.

    An instant collection really takes the fun out of it.
