    Hello, my Grandpa left me a german luger with pouch and extra clip. It has 1916 engraved on top as well as other engravings. How can I tell how much this is worth and where do I go to get it reconditioned?

    We need good pictures of the gun and the holster, preferably in natural light with no flash...

    The best advice on Luger "reconditioning" (if by that you mean refinishing) is DON'T. In almost every case, any original finish, no matter how bad, is better than a refinish. Polish and reblue and you can kiss the collector value goodbye.
