Thanks...the disposition form as a war trophy will add about 20% to the normal retail value. With the holster and document, the piece normally retails in the range of $600 to $850 depending on overall condition of all pieces (gun and holster). You can purchase the guns in average condition for around $300-400. They are relatively common. Note: Pre-War and wartime production only went up to serial number 325,000 so I think perhaps you are not looking at the actual weapon is a great FREE link that will give you more history on these firearms including issue ranges:
