Default New to Me GT refurbished 1906 AE “Fondler”

Well, what can I say, he has done it again! After getting my Brazilian contract Luger, I have always loved the feel of the 1906 but was always loathe to overly handle the one I had for fear of hurting the finish. So I asked GT to source a shooter grade 1906 for me to love on a little more and he really delivered. It is a finish challenged but all matching 1906 American Eagle serial number 28808, still built on a Long Frame too! Had it undergo the full GT workshop treatment so I know when I can source some more .30 Luger ammo at an affordable price, I can shoot it and it will function as intended. As it is all matching and the finish is original despite the extensive wear, I don’t know how often I will actually go shoot it. At the bare minimum I can love up on this one without worrying about marring the finish up. Maybe more appropriately titled as a “fondler” than a true “shooter.”

I just love the balance that the 1906 models have and the way they feel in hand. The fact that now I have an early AE as one I can play with more instead of a frankenluger 1906 type just makes it that much of a better Christmas/Birthday present. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures. Last one is with my Brazilian for reference. Thank you again GT for all the help in making this happen!
