Sorry Jim, it's a shooter now, no collector would touch it. My guess is $750.00, give or take $100.00.

Thanks seller wants $800 for it

I have other Lugers, all matching, but don't want to break a part

What parts do Lugers break??

Firing pins, extractors, ejectors, hold-open levers. I broke an upper barrel extension once too. How bad a job did Bubba do?

The ribs that the detectable stock attached are ground off, rounded and contoured to the frame and cooled blued

Bubba did do a fairly good job

I think he knocked About $1K of it,s value to collectors

Anyone know if this was commonly done?

I can't do pictures, but it is a crisp example of a P 08

Less common than Conventional Wisdom would have you believe, but they are out there. As you describe it, it is a $500 gun and you would do well to talk it down from there.

Not real common, but this does appear sometimes.
In the confusion regarding full stock use, some Lugers did meet this fate
Mostly in the 40s and 50s.
