    .30 ruger

    I have a chance at buying a.30 Luger. was wondering how much these should cost, and pros and cons of gun. it is in fair shape but very functional.

    Yes, definitely need more information. You're asking about the P.08 Luger pistol chambered in .30 Luger. There have been multiple manufacturers and variations of this pistol. The value will vary based on rarity and condition. You can visit the link below to get an idea of the variety of P.08 pistols that have been manufactured over the years.

    Not everyone buys small arms to shoot....some of us buy things collectible (in our eyes) that we have no intention of ever putting a round through.....FWIW


    Hell, I own quite a few rifles, that I have never put a round through.....I have no idea if they even work. Bought 'em used....they were just something I wanted in my stable
    Here's to pussy and gunpowder. One to live for, the other to die by.....Goddamn though, I do love the smell of 'em both !!!

    I haven't shot many of my guns, but all I would have to do is grab a box of ammo off the shelf and head to range if I ever wanted to. If I wanted to own a Luger (and I have) it would be 9mm, only reason to buy a 30 would be if it was an awesome deal. Also, one thing about Lugers - they can be a bit tricky to run if parts don't match or are "out of tune". As OP posted it is supposedly "very functional" - that would have to be verified.

    i think the 7.65 .32 on mine is denoting you can use 7.65/7.65 browning or .32 which is 32acp/auto/

    Check this link out: http://archives.gunsandammo.com/content/baby-luger

    And this one: http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/i.../t-563442.html

    It sounds like you either have a junky reproduction, an expensive reproduction, or an extremely rare and expensive museum piece.
