What is a fair price for a good, not excellent, all matching Spreewerk these days?
Very likely Russian dipped. You see the really black locking block pin and trigger springs? Spreewerk was the only manufacturer that frequently had lightly blued locking blocks and pins. However, they were not the dark black like you see here. And trigger springs were never known to have been blued. It has post-war serial numbered magazines (all three are typical East German/Czech style numbering...Spreewerk never numbered magazines) and the wrong grips. My belief is this was likely picked up and dipped by the Russians and later used by a comm-bloc nation post war before being imported here.
I appreciate the response. I felt like I could get it for $1100-1150. I just hate to buy something that I need to change without it being a good deal.Read the post I wrote above. This is a b-block, made around April of 1943, in decent condition. You won't have any idea if its worth anything until you find out if the locking block and barrel are correctly numbered. It has the wrong grips on it, and correct replacements will be $150+, when you can find them. Find out what magazine it has. It should only be Eagle/88 proofed on the lower spine. If the locking block and barrel do match, the condition of this one does not warrant a $1295 price tag, since the grips are mismatched at a minimum. If the magazine is correct, and if the rest of it matches, I'd say it's $1100. You need to find out more details before spending money on it.
