I have a set on my .22 cal PP. I like them.

I have no idea but it sounds ballpark. Seems about the price I'd be willing to pay/entertain.
I suspect the prices vary widely depending on condition and any known history.

I do know "collector prices" have fallen in just about every category over the last few years, including guns.

got a German made PPK in .380 .. sweet carry gun... very compact package. quit carrying it after it jammed. just don't trust it. round nose jacketed bullets would feed the best. but even that jammed.

definitely would not trust PPK with hollow points. Switched to a S&W 340PD revolver (11oz), much lighter and 100% reliable. regardless of what ammo.

Didn't know these existed . The longer barrel seems a nice touch.
Updates will be forthcoming

Yeah. I've been building my collection over the last year. Just WWII collectibles.

I haven't planned on a Luger this early so I haven't done shit for research. I gave my brother a list of guns I am looking for and he calls me when something comes through his shop. I'm waiting for pics of any markings.

If you like the PPK, try one of those little Bersa 380's

Sounds about right. I have a 1938 S/42. If it has the original holster and take down tool in good shape that price can go up $300.00 to $500.00. Anything you want to know about Lugers you can find here> http://www.lugerforum.com/

The Ruger LCR has been getting solid reviews.

Amazing how the pocket rocket / Saturday night special niche has exploded recently. Very gratifying, glad of the options.

Yep. I bet Bill Ruger is turning over in his grave.

One more reply. Sorry but if you have ever shot a P08 you will know what I meen. It is a great gun. Very well made. I have taken many guns apart and put back together. Very few match that pistol as far as quality. Use Winchester hard ball white box ammo. One warning. Do not wear a loose neck shirt when shooting,The brass will burn you.

Really it is a great gun and That looks like a fair deal if not re finnished. The market price will not go down if that is what you are worried about.

I even made a post a year or two ago about the 1911 vs the P08 in this thread as well as how I got it. I can load the 1911 twice as quick really but the Luger I would say is twice as accurate all guns stock.

Thank you.

One might even say that Mr. Ruger's death was the best thing to happen to Ruger (the company) since the expiration of the Bill Ruger-supported AWB.

The only way the LCR, LCP and LC9 would ever have been made was over his dead body.

In unrelated news, got to fondle a Finnish Moist Nugget for the first time the other day.

Wow. The first thing I noticed was the distance markings on the rear sight were not evenly placed, more of a logarithmic scale. The second was the stock is much heavier. Fit and finnish was waaaay better too. Like comparing a Honda scooter to a Chinese scooter.

why? already put a beautifully made German PPK .380 out of service due to low powered round, jamming and too heavy.

what would change by going to a Bersa .380?
same for all the plastic based tiny auto pistols...

tried a few of those too, couldn't sell em fast enough.

your experience may be different from mine. but my problem with tiny auto pistols is not being able to hold em solid enough to contribute to jams and I've got a pretty strong grip.

for a carry weapon, we all agree reliability is top of list of importance. all auto pistols has to cycle a few hundred rounds to prove it's going to feed each and every time.

for an underpowered round like .380 ... using higher power defensive loads is even more important. who do you know that's willing to pay say $26 for 20rds or $300+ just to prove it's going to feed reliability?

this is why a S&W 340PD .357 magnum that weights 11oz has taken over duties from the old standby Walther PPK.
