Default Krieghoff P 59

I would like tp share with you Krieghoff P 59 with its two matching cannons; one chambered in 9mm at 100mm in length; the second chambered in 7.65 in 150mm length. Additionally it has two matching magazines.

First, a little history as I know it. P 59 was acquired by a collector friend of mine who specializes in Broomhandles and has some of the finest in existence. He acquired P 59 in the very early 80's while buying, with a partner, a collection of Broomhandles and Lugers. At the end of the purchase, he was offered P59 because his partner had a virtually matching firearm except the chamberings were the exact opposite: the 9mm was 150mm and the 7.65mm was 100mm.

We had been doing shows together for a great time as our backgrounds are extraordinarily similiar, when he showed up with P 59 and offered it to me as the sole Luger in his collection. It had been in his safe since he put it there upon acquisition nearly 30 years ago. Of course, my response once I was able to speak again, was in the affirmative. It isn't everyday that a mint Luger is offered one; and to be a Krieghoff with matching cannons and mags put me into a headspin!

So I now will allow the gun to speak for itself, adding only needed description. Credit must go to Jerry Burney, who took these images and talked me into doing a presentation to The Forum.

If I could just concentrate, this would be a breeze; but trying to get rid of this flu has my keyboard sizzling! I'll try to get some images posted tonight.

You all have my sincere apologies for the poor presentation of this fine firearm. I am having a hell of a time getting my images resized and re-contented to appropriately fit The Forum. I now need to call on support or reshoot the entire shoot in lower definition.

Anybody willing to help, please contact me at home on Monday at your convenience. Otherwise, I won't be able to share this with all.

P 59 9mm in 100mm length canon. This view shows the underside or the rail with a plug that appears to fill a hole for the rivet used to install the sear safety on a police gun. It is unnoticable from the top side and only seen after intense scrutiny on the bottom.

Note the machining mark at the top of the lug. It appears as if it drilled a hole beyond spec before finishing the lug track

Threaded hole on inside of grip. Both grips had two threaded holes to facilitate removal of the grip from its mold. All 4 are as new on P 59
