Default PO8 Luger Parts. Original or Modern?

Gentlemen.

I would very much appreciate your input on these grips, cleaning rods and loading tools.

Are they original pre 1945 or more recent copies? There are no stampings on the loading tools or cleaning rods.

I think that the grips and rods are pre 45. Many years and types of Lugers had unmarked and non numbered grips. Funny collectors often donít know that and insist everypart be numbered so good pieces are messed up by parts numbering or switching to satisfy the ignorant.

The tools I donít care for as they do not seem to be made to spec.

Many thanks for your input, that's a great help.

The stocks look original, but appear to have been cleaned.

Agree that the tools aren't original. About 10 years ago there was a quantity of tools with the same appearance as those at the Tulsa show.

Agree with above, the grips certainty look to have been cleaned. That does not bother me much price wise but others will differ.
