Post 1937 HK Luger Question...

Very recently saw a 1937 HK luger with serial number # 59xx. (If anyone wants to know the full serial number and the selling dealer, send me a Private Message...)

From the serialization tables in the R. Gibson book on pages 73-75, shouldn't this luger be a 1936 (4-digit) ?

I know HK was a bit sloppy with numbering, but I thought most 1937's spotted are in the early #6300 's and higher...

I also realize a lot of HK's have surfaced since R. Gibson issued his book in 1980 and 1988...

What think you HK experts out there...?

Thanks in advanced for helping out this beginner...

Pete,
Krieghoff serial numbers can be confusing as the dates/numbers tend to overlap. There would not be enough monetary gain to change a 1936 into a 1937. The gun is probably OK.

Thanks, Brad for your feedback...

Serial nubmer sighted was # 5993 at ~ 94-95% condition; for those of you tracking HK luger sightings. Gun was sporting a pair of Ritzmann grips, as well. Asking price was $ 3,750.00...
