    Default Lucky flea market finds.

    Hi guys,

    I am on a job in Georgia and I stumbled over this little grouping - I was late to the flea market and apparently they had sold all the good stuff before I got there.

    The P38 mags are good with one post war Danish mag.
    The Luger mags turned out to be two Mexcian and two after market and one wooden tipped original.

    If anyone is interested in closer pics I can provide.

    Just sort of an interesting find at a flea market that sold mainly chickens and rusty tools.

    Well, hopefully you got 'em for flea market pricing!

    Thats a hell of a haul, for sure!

    Wonder what the good stuff was?

    I chatted for a while, and as far as I could determine the good stuff (for them) was boxed factory ammo which sold quickly.
    There were three German daggers one on a hanger, but badly beaten up, two army and one Luft.

    I am "even and then some" if I sell one of the M4 bayonets.
    I will likely sell the lot when I get home, after this gig.

    #5. The double spine marked mag seems it might be a P38 zero series - I have a friend with a zero series P38, so may give that one to him, as it's very nice condition. Except the serial doesn't start with a zero :(

    I'll keep the double edged case fighting knife as I collect that stuff and it's a somewhat uncommon example.

    Not sure, good question though, I presumed it was an FN or Browning 1922 - I have a 605b so, I'll check to see the fit when I get back home, would good if it fits
    The mag pouch is very loose on a P38 mag, so you may be right.
