My Krieghoff
 
What value would it have in the U.S. approximately?

does this gun have anything special?

very good conservation status.

All parts same numbering.

Including charger number.

Number P 232

Hi Antonio,
That HK is probably worth more in Spain than it is over here as it is likely a Condor Legion gun. I'm sure your guess as to value would be better than mine.

Didn't they produce ten thousand a year?

What and why the difference between dated or different codes used by Kreighoff. How much did those made in the war years differ, if any from prewar?

Does it have a star on the right receiver ?

CASTELLANO 03-24-2021 02:03 AM

Yes, it has a star on the right receiver

and also under the canyon.

Lugerdoc 03-24-2021 11:21 AM

The "side marked" Kreighoffs were nomally standard commerical DWM lugers marketed by KH during the Weimar era. I've never seen one with a KH marked toggle assy and a P prefix serial. TH

1933 FORD NUT 03-24-2021 08:02 PM

Gibsons book has much info on these " P codes " and they are also called " commercials " .

Star means it failed inspection and was rejected by the LwA2 inspector .

Not unheard of to see this side frame inscription .

Probably from 1938 or 1939 assy .

Heinz 03-24-2021 11:19 PM

Castellano, where do you see a "star" on the right receiver? I cannot see it in the photo

CASTELLANO 03-25-2021 01:46 AM

REF: Star means it failed inspection and was rejected by the LwA2 inspector . ???

Then??
Isn't that a good Krieghoff?

I made a bad purchase?

cost me 2500 euros in Collector's Book

I find it strange that the star's mark means rejected.

In Spain precisely in some pistols, the star means the opposite, that is, approved

I read somewhere that the star mearly means the gun was pulled out of military guns for commercial use~I believe it was Gibson! It is still a valuable commercial Kreighoff luger! Check out this Legacy Kreighoff variations video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEeFlXKkj08

Confirmed in Toms' video star does mean legit made for commercial use! I SENT THIS THREAD TO HIM! Kreighoff is top of the line! The wouldn't approve for sale a defective or substandard luger and market it for sale! They were very proud of their brand and protected it!

CASTELLANO 03-25-2021 03:54 PM

Then
mean "rejected"?
...
or the star means "approved," ?



and
commercial weapon, it's something I was already clear about.

1933 FORD NUT 03-25-2021 05:47 PM

The star is a reject mark .
It does not mean it is a bad HK .
It means it did not pass inspection and was put with others that had issues .

After the 10,000 contract was filled these were fixed if possible and sold on the commercial market .

These generally bring more than common military contract ones as they are much less common .

This is all readily available info so why all this muddy water ???

cirelaw 03-25-2021 06:15 PM

What is your serial number? I want to see if it is recorded in our Kreighoff data base. Congrads!

lugerholsterrepair 03-25-2021 08:19 PM

From the original post P232 is the pistols serial.

cirelaw 03-26-2021 08:01 AM

I sent the pictures of his luger to Tom Whiteman at Legacy Arm an expert on Kreighoffs and he responded "This is a commercial Kreighoff. "The star proof was was instead of an Eagle L 2 proof. It will be on the frame of all commercial HKs~https://search.aol.com/aol/video;_yl...91&action=view

Eric,

With all due respect, I strongly suggest that you delete this post.

Thank you.

John
