WWII Mauser  byf  Code  41  Dated Luger Semi-Automatic Pistol
This is a fine example of a 1941 Mauser production P.08 luger. These models exhibited the start of the "P.08" frame markings on the left side of the pistol. The top of the chamber is dated "41" and the toggle is marked "byf", the new war time code for the Mauser factory. The right side of the barrel extension is marked with the double "Eagle 655" Waffenamt" proof next to the single eagle firing proof, which is also marked on the left side of the barrel. The underside of the barrel is also marked with the matching serial number, along with the bore marking of 8,81. It has the correct "GESICHERT" and " GELADEN" markings. As noted, this model has the all dark blue/black metal finish with checkered walnut grips. Complete with one all blued, milled magazine that is marked on the sides with "fxo/eagle 37/P.08" markings with the aluminum base marked; "2167t" with the reinforcing pin through the center.
