I don't have one. But, I would like to acquire one. The problem is, I due to so few sales, it's hard for me to determine a "fair" price on one in decent condition.

Any guesses about what they are or should sell for? Price range?

I would say for one in serviceable condition you're looking at at least $7,500 or more.

A Ludwig Loewe, cased with all accessories, in like new condition, would probably cost around $50k or more. A DWM, in poor shape but functional, and just the gun, could probably be had for $6-8k.

If you are lucky enough to find one, don't fire it or if you must, use light loads. I have seen one that had a broken toggle due to firing Russian 7.62x25 ammo in it.

Also, dis- and re-assembly is tricky, not many instructions are out there and some are wrong. It is easy to damage the gun if one does not know what one is doing.

I came across one of these recently on the Jan Still forum. Its interesting where this CASED borchardt currently resides:

What a shame it is. I wonder what it would bring at auction....

We sold a pretty nice one with stock last month for $12.5k to another dealer only 3 days after we aquired it . He'll make a few bucks on it as well .
