Maker's code, indicating that the pistol was made by Mauser.
value depends on overall condition. your mauser COULD be worth $900-$1200
"BYF" is an abbreviation for "Bring Your Friends."
no, just means gun made early 1941 (based on serial number)
that should be 'byf 41 and that means it was made by Mauser. value depends on overall condtion................
if you actually mean 'luger', it was a pistol used by the germans in ww2
check top of the luger. you should see: byf(mauser), suhl, erfurt, or DWM. those are the different makers
by reference to 'luger' ammo, one believes it to be a 9mm cartridge, which is the cartrige for the German luger. however, there are many other pistol that were made to fire the 9mm luger cartridge. in addition, the luger was also made in the '30 cal luger' which is a smaller bullet in a necked down cartridge.
the luger is a German design, not french. luger value depends on overall condition.......
It is impossible to value a Luger with just a serial number.
firearm value depends on overall condition. do you have a picture of the luger ??
The Luger P08 was a standard sidearm of the German Military in both World Wars.
8.83 is the diameter of the luger bore. which means it's a 9mm caliber
Amazing as it may seem, the holster for the German Luger can be worth as much as $300.
luger were made to fire a 9mm cartridge or the 30 luger cartridge. a 9mm cartridge will not chamber in a 30 cal luger pistol............

I believe you will find that the German Luger P08 went into production in the early 1900's. P08 basically refers to Pistol of 1908.The luger was used extensively during WW1 and WW2 by German forces.
luger production ceased about 1942. the P38 took over as the German military pistol during WW2..................any luger made after WW2 were after market pistols.
- Luger (German Pistol) - sugar
9x19 millimetre, also known as the 9mm Luger or 9mm Parabellum.
if you look down on the luger top you will see a date. that is when it was made.....
German Luger pistols before 1902 used a proprietary 7.65mm bottleneck cartridge, sometimes referred to as .30 Luger in US. After 1902 Lugers used the 9mm round, also commonly known as 9mm Para (Parabellum) and 9mm Luger.
Good answer below. The "9mm Luger" is properly the 9mm Parabellum, but it is also called the Luger. There are about a dozen different cartridges with 9mm in their name, but the 9mm Luger is the best known.
