In 98% mint sharp condition, we have a very fine example of the rare and elusive Mauser 41-42 Code P.08 Luger Pistol in Black Widow configuration with the Black Plastic grips and one matching magazine. This is fully rigged out withe a spare mag, e/655 Tool and a very sharp bdq.41 code (Erhardt & Kirsten, Leipzig) made black hardshell Luger holster. Most of these pistols are found with Walnut grips so this is a plus. Only 7,000 of this variant were produced and they represent the earliest production months of 1941 before the Heereswaffenamt ordered Mauser to institute a production code change from “42” to the new code which was “byf“.
The vast majority of 1941 production Lugers were marked “byf41” so its a real find to get a “41-42” coded variant. This is all matching including the magazine and is a textbook example. As you can well imagine very few of these pistols have survived the war let alone this nice. A real find for any collector especially with those grips and fully rigged out.
