Default Reunited with an old friend

Today a friend of mine sold me back a 1917 Arty that I sold him about 6 years ago. I sold it to him for $1500 and bought it back, with a commercial type stock, for $1800.

I remembered it as all matching but when I got it home my memory came back to me as I rediscovered it has a Swiss side plate, mismatched extractor and hold open. It also has British import marks on the right side of the barrel.

My gut feeling is I overpayed a bit but the gun is otherwise VERY clean, 95%-97%, with a perfect bore.

My gut feeling is that your friend may also have overpaid.

In retrospect that's probably true. My original purchase price for it was $1200 about 8 years ago. Oh well, I usually get pretty good buys on guns so if I overpaid a little on this one I'm still ahead overall.

JimD,
Can you tell me if there is somewhere in/around San Diego to be able to look at some lugers. Just recently got the bug and haven't really been able to scratch it!

He kept this gun for six years without shooting? Probably waiting a chance so it can be sold back Why was a stock board added to it, not for use? I heard 8" does not perform well without a stock. Never got a chance to try though.
