    American Eagle Luger

    I acquired this Model 1900 American Eagle Luger. I noticed that there wasn't a lot of information about them on this site so I figured i would upload some pictures and document the locations where serial numbers were found. The front and back straps of the grip show some wear, but for it being one of the original Lugers manufactured 120+ years ago, I'm pretty happy with it. It is chambered in .30 Luger and has the grip safety. The serial numbers were located at the following locations:
    [LIST][*]Take down lever[*]Front of frame[*]Bolt carrier[*]Both grip panels[*]Base of barrel[*]Grip safety[*]Trigger[*]Inside of the toggle[*]Take down plate[*]Rear sight base

    I hope this information is helpful to someone!

    Nice piece, good catch. I've only seen one of these, they aren't too common in Canadaicon. I was over in Port Angeles WA and there was an "Antique mall" of sorts that had a selection of odd handguns. This one was hidden in the shadows and had been reblued. I couldn't see it too well and considering there was NO chance of me purchasing it at it's $3000USD price tag I didn't bother asking to see it. This one here is very nice...
    Regards, Jim

    Thank you, she appears to be all original. This gun was given to a friend of mine for free with 5 other handguns. He doesn't know anything about gums and asked me for help. When I told him the value and how much I would pay, he was pretty happy to part with it. 3k is definitely too much. Now that I finally screwed up the courage to go down the Luger rabbit hole, I've been learning a lot! I was surprised that one of the oldest Lugers made doesn't hold the same value as the those made during WWI and WWII. Most guns work the opposite way with older guns being more valuable than later ones. The "commercial" versus "military" arguments are interesting to study.
