FLY HIGH WITH HOWARD HUGHES’ LUGER — No Comments

  1. Does anyone make modern reproduction Lugers? It would be interesting to own one but I dont really buy weapons that are not shooters anymore.

  2. Chem, I don’t know of anyone producing one today. However, there are a few “not particularly collectible” Lugers — “shooter Lugers” if you will, often cobbled together from mismatched parts, but functional — that are out there at affordable prices. Ya just have to be patient and look hard for them.

  3. What a shame that the current owner must sell such an interesting piece. I’ll wager that he could make a respectable amount of money selling the experience of firing, or perhaps merely handling this one, without having to let it escape his collection.

  4. I love my snub-nosed .38 Colt Detective Special. Mine is Blued Steel and the knob on the cylinder release is smooth not checkered.
    Mine looks like it’s in much better shape ~ Anyone go $111,000?

  5. I thought someone was making repro Lugers several years back. Stoeger pops into mind but I could easily be wrong there.

  6. If you are hesitant to shoot older Lugers, try finding one of the Mauser Lugers made in the 1970’s. These are modern, well made pistols and do not command the collector prices associated with many wartime P-08 pistols. Just make sure you are comfortable with the grip safety.
