He has a good eye for quality is what everyone seems to be saying, and thank you for that recommendation. I will probably only ever shoot her if I can get some replacement grips for her. Yours looks very nice though and that little thing is quite the good shooter! And Thank you for the SN table!Condolences for your loss. Amazing inheritance and collection. I agree that Ithaca seems in very good condition, and the Colt while refinished is still a nice piece.
The Luger seems beautiful too and having the matching magazine holster and loading tool is priceless.
I also have a Zella-Mehlis PPK, made in 1939, but mine is a civilian one.
If you shoot it I recommend you carefully remove the one piece grip and store it, the plastic is quite brittle and known to crack easily, and is very difficult to replace. Ask me how I know.
It is also a surprisingly accurate gun given its size. This was shot at 25 meters
Lastly here is a table with manufacture date / serial numbers you might find useful
Thank you Greek! Im doing as much research as I can and I’ve joined some different forums to learn from everyone on there as much as possible! I appreciate everyone’s knowledgeExcellent inheritance that you will treasure through the years. I would do some research on each item and this way you will learn and appreciate what you have.
Wow I’m so sorry to hear that sir, I hope your sons and grandsons cherish your guns. Sadly right after he passed most of his entire collection was sold at auction. Cloth, helmets, daggers swords etc. I’ll share some pictures of what sold. If the symbols of the third reich are not aloud or offend anyone I apologize in advance.Glad to see Grandpa didn’t sell it but passed it on. I’m faced with a similar situation. Diagnosed with Cancer and owning over 100 guns. I have twin sons and two Grandchildren. My dilemma is trying to figure out whom gets what without causing a dispute or hard feelings. My high dollar items will definitely go to who will keep it and not sell. My sporting rifles and common handguns will go to who I know has absolutely no interest in firearms and will sell.
