    Just wondering what top price could i get for my luger? All serial numbers match, 1937 and byf stamp on top of luger, and crown over N on bottom of barrel. Bore is in excellent condition, no rust or pitting, and VOPO grips.

    Russian capture Lugers fall into the shooter class. Shooter Lugers sell for anywhere from $650 to $800, depending on condition.

    It is a parts gun. Mauser didn't use the byf code until 1941, so the toggle doesn't match the receiver, no matter what the numbers say. The barrel is post-war, with the East German crown/N barrel proof mark. Some RC Lugers may be collectibles, but that one is a shooter.
