    The one in Tulalip. I have had good luck finding stuff there.

    Recently picked up two pistols there, first was a 1916 Erfurt P08 and the other was a nice Gray Ghost P38.

    The Luger is all matching except for the magazine, which is a correct wood bottom mag. Bore is bright and shiny.

    Made under French occupation at the end of WWII. Commonly known as a Gray Ghost P38 for the parkerized finish. Grips are stamped sheet metal.

    Very nice finds! I own both a P08 and P38 (Neither military). The P38 is a much nicer shooter. The Luger is a much cooler gun! I really enjoy both of them!

    I had to put a new recoil spring in my P38. It was pretty harsh shooting full power 9mm before replacing the recoil spring. I believe the new recoil spring has gone a long way to keep the gun from battering itself apart.

    Would you be comfortable sharing how much you paid for them?

    Very cool....Something about those Luger P-08s! Ever since you were a kid ya' know? I'd love to have one, but from what I know you really don't want to shoot them, much if at all. And if I'm going to put that kind of money down, I want to shoot it!

    Great score! I always check when I'm at LGS but never run across anything I want.

    Very nice! I would not have hesitated at all to drop $800 on the Luger!
    if you do shoot it, dont shoot any +P. I also have read that folks will replace the springs with a Wolf spring kit and also the firing pin. It too has the serial number on it.

    I don't know what one should pay but the Luger including yours is about the coolest looking semis ever made...
