Hi, I would be glad to help you any way that I can by answering your question to the best of my ability.The Mauser manufactured Luger; S/42 Dated - 4" barrel, 9mm caliber. It has a stock lug, and the extractor and safety are marked. This was the first Luger that utilized codes to represent maker and date of manufacture. The front toggle link is marked S/42 in either Gothic or script; this was the code for Mauser. The chamber area is stamped with the letter "K", the code for 1934, or "G", the code for 1935, the year of manufacture. Approx. 10,500 were manufactured with one- to five-digit serial numbers-some with letter suffixes.Grading:Exc.: $8000, Vgood: $5500, Good: $2200, Fair: $1200This info was taken from the latest edition of the Standard Catalog of Military Firearms.
