    I agree, I had an early “C” slotted that was really nice, except for a mismatched barrel. Sold it probably a little too cheaply and foolishly thinking I wouldn’t miss it when I bought my STEN. I...

    Thanks for the feedback. Looking around at other commercial models the 900-1000 in this shape is totally fair for the rig in the shape it’s in I believe. That being said it comes down to what does...

    Fair price for a pre-war PPK?

    That’s what I thought too, I thought 1400-1500 was probably more in line with a “fair” price given the overall condition. I don’t like to rip people off, but I also don’t like to overpay.

    Fair price for a pre-war PPK?

    Wartime Radoms - Opinions Wanted

    This is who I ended up with. Pulled them apart and the other had a mismatched barrel which made the decision easy at that point. Still happy with what I got (apologize in advance for the bad...

    Agreed - mid war three levers. Had a couple of late war as well, but I like the look of the three lever best myself. That being said, two levers are still very nice guns.

    Thanks Richie - the odd brown mark on the reverse of #3 seems like an eye sore to me. Like you say, all others being equal I think it’s the better looking gun

    Pre and Post WWII Era Paper Money

    Forgot I had all of this, bought the bag at a garage sale 10+ years ago from the family of a vet. The selling point for was the note, the true value of a fiat money system!

    SVW45 P38 Marking

    I thought the painted F & S were peculiar with this as well, most I had seen researching this didn’t have the paint. Thank you for the confirmation there. I have a few wartime P38s and though I don’t...

    Cleaning rods are a bit easier to determine, the shape of the screw as well as the taper of the rod. Site goods are different, I can tell a bad repo, they’re more “springy” and blueing is new.
