I inherited a 1939 Luger p08. Hasn't been shot in I'm guessing since the war. All matching numbers...tore it down to clean it...

Tested it a few days ago out back...didn't fire, wouldn't cycle, jammed when it did fire etc..

took it all apart, pulled springs, fixed the magazine throat, pulled extractor spring and stretched it a bit..reassembled...

now works perfect...not really a gun I want to shoot much due to matching numbers and good condition...but it's functioning reliably now...
