Here is my WW1 German Luger. It has all matching parts, except for the magazines. Serial Number 5841, made in 1918 at Erfurt. Real nice condition with the bluing covering the majority of the parts. The holster is dated 1911, so not original to this pistol, but it displays well. Very good craftsmanship, well made piece. Still shoots straight to this day.

The leather holster could do with some saddle care, especially on the straps, otherwise all will deteriorate in time. I do not recommend using antiques in general, they should be allowed to rest.

I use Pecard antique leather dressing to help soften the leather, however once the leather is cracked it is fragile. I agree, I do not shoot most of my older weapons, when/if I do I have them checked out by a gunsmith first. However I do really enjoy shooting my 1943 M1 Carbine.
