Post Krieghoff Value

Hi all,
I was at the gun show in Portland Oregon today and saw a 1937 Krieghoff. Unfortunately it has been re-finished. It was done well but appears to be a salt blue and not a rust blue, they did straw the parts that should have been strawed. I didn't look at the bore. The grip appeared to be the correct brown plastic. The gun comes with a Lufwaffe(sp?) marked holster and two 37 era Mauser magazines. Asking price was $2500. I thought this was very high for a refinished gun. I put the value with the holster and mags at around $1500. Dwight Gruber was at the show and we both looked at this piece. He thought it was worth less than I did. I wanted to get some feedback from people who know Krieghoff's better than I do. Have prices gone up so much that a refinished gun would command that type of price? Where should this type of gun be priced?

Thanks,
Bob M.

I'd price it some where between $1000-1250, it is just a shooter now.

Tom's probably nailed it.

Joe Salter had a nice refinished 1940 HK...(a bit more rare) that sold around $ 1750 or so...if I remember the asking price correctly.

Bob,
A quick note; Krieghoff's Lugers were salt blued and not rust blued. The trigger, locking bolt, thumb safety lever, ejector, and magazine release button are straw color.
Thanks, Tony

Tony,
Thanks for the info. I'll look at this one again but the guy said it had been redone. He also said that Simpson had offered him $2200 for it. I don't know the guy but one of my friends does and said he is a very straight arrow and didn't think he'd make up the Simpson story.

Umm - if Simpson offered $2200 for a 1937 HK - it "ain't no" re-blue. If it were, I suspect the Simpson's offer price would be substantially less.

Just MHO....
