This rare WWII Nazi "Black Widow" PO8 Luger, with all matching numbers (except for magazine) .

. Another distinguishing feature for this model is the "P08" on the left side of the frame and Waffenamt code on the right hand side.

 

The 135 proof marks with straight wings and secret Mauser toggle code "42" indicate 1942 as the year of manufacture.

 

The serial number is from one of the very last batches ever made by Mauser.



The Black Widow is one of the most sought after of the Luger variants, and was only ever produced in limited numbers from 1941-42, after which it was phased out with the P38 becoming the standard issued sidearm

 

This is a rare pistol.

 

Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked, stripped and dry fired.
