Be sure you know that it will not fire hollow points and some other 9mm's. This pistol works real good with hardballs.
In most states in the southeast, you can sell guns on the street corner or flee markets without paper work, but if they prove to be stolen
you will have to give it back. I learned this the hard way. I had to give back a like new Remmington 1100 that the boy said was his and it was actually his fathers. The sheriffs dept came and got the gun and tried to get me for receiving stolen property. It cost me six hundred bucks for a lawyer to get out of it and then I had to pay the same lawyer 2 thousand to get me probation for sending the S.O.B to the emergency room...plus..I had to pay for the doctors bill.
Do be careful about buying a gun from anyone but a dealer.

WHERE THE BLEEEEEEP ARE YOU ?????

Gun laws vary dramatically from one place to another. My frickin' crystal ball is back in the shop for a front end alignment. You did not tell us where you reside, and it is not in your public profile.
I've never seen you get so fired up over location like that...

Spent three years there in the Navy.

Just be glad the con-artists haven't been

getting to you...

Yanno, maybe all the gun stores and pawn shops have been pricing

their "valuable collector Luger" outrageously, but in good condition,

unless I miss my guess, that pistol should be worth at least

2200$...

Considering its a piece of my family, its priceless. I assumed it was between one and two grand, but I'll never sell.

As Therewolf said.. again depending on where it's from and the condition.. 2 grand is possible on a sale. They have been accelerating in value the last few years. So much so that it's a shame to carry a pristine example. Wish I had got one of the Russian Capture Rebuilds that came around a few years back so I could shoot it...
One reason the price goes up on these has to do with maintaining REAL value against inflation.. not just rarity.

At the least, it is worth over a grand and it could reach $3400 or better.

The ammo is fine to shoot. Lots of people are shooting WWII surplus ammo now without a problem.

Now for your problem. Your mother needs to put her wishes in writing as to the heirship of the gun. I would even suggest she give it to you now in order for there to be someone that can attest to where the gun came from and the linage of it.

Been there, dun that. IF the ammo you have is in original German packaging, DONT shoot it.. get something else. The ammo alone has value to a collector.
the parabellum can be ammo-finiky. Some US made 9mm is under-powered compared to European. Get a couple of boxes of different stuff- Sellier and Belliot sells the hotter Euro stuff, and maybe some Winchester "white box" 9mm.
It would be interesting to hear the markings on the pistol and what if anything came with it.. holster, takedown tool, cleaning rod, "capture papers".. etc. The markings would tell where and when it was made. A holster might have unit markings. Im guessing it is in possession of your Mother. One consideration may be is it registered? Or one of Michigan's "unpapered" pistols? An understanding Chief LEO might paper it or might confiscate it. Moving it to a state like Colo or Florida would make papering unnecessary. That's one big reason I left Michigan many years ago.. too many onerous laws.
Best wishes and I hope you have many years to enjoy it!
