    Ok, so I'm probably going to kick myself forever listing this but here we go...

    What we have here is a Vopo P08 Luger made new in 1953 as a series of 100 test pistols made to show that the East Germans could manufacture their own pistols. These pistols are identified by a "N" prefix on the serial #. They started at N1001-N1100. This one is #36.

    This gun is in immaculate shape with just a little regular wear and no rust or pitting. It is mostly numbers matching with the only non matching part is part of the toggle. I hear they had a problem with this and and it wasn't uncommon to rebuild the toggle from time to time with existing surplus parts. Here is a good article from another forum that explains more In detail.

    The pistol is a 9mm caliber with two mags, one reproduction and the other I believe is a post war Vopo mag but it is not #s matching.

    I'm asking $1550 for this very rare example of a post war Luger.

    Would consider trades for other collectible firearms:
    i.e. WWI and WWII but not limited to war guns

    Other trades would be for a 308 battle rifle, preferably a M1A or maybe AR10. Also could be interested in a Sig M11A1. Open to other trades as well, never know what I might fancy...

    Also can send more detailed pictures upon request.

    I don't have anything you'd want or is cost-effective, but I want you to know that I really wish I had something to trade...as I would offer it up in a heartbeat...That is a piece of Cold War history right there and I wish I could afford it...please at least make sure it goes to a good home who will treat it right...

    Thank you! It is hard to find people who appreciate this little piece of history. And yes I will make sure it goes to a good home, or stay in its prized spot as a conversation spot in my safe. I'm only getting rid of it because there are people who will appreciate it more than me...
