In 95-96% condition we have a very decent example of the very well known and highly sought after Luftwaffe Inspected Ku marked Luger. This is one of the approx 5000 that were produced with the Ku suffix. The pistol is completely matching to include the rare numbered aluminum bottom fxo coded magazine. The frame and toggle are byf 41 marked and the barrel is 655 coded. The bore is excellent. This is a classic example of what collectors call the Ku Luger, with three Luftampt inspection stamps and the use of replacement parts and a blue finish that was not as well done as Mauser production.
There has been more speculation about the origin and circumstances surrounding these Lugers than any other WW2 Variant Luger. The prevailing theory is that they were assembled in very early 1943 for the Luftwaffe out of leftover Mauser parts by an unknown contractor that the code Ku stands for. This has been assumed to be the firm of Adolph Kurschner – Metalwaffenfabrik in Bavaria, but this may never be definitively verified.
