Default what does "lugar" mean in regards to handguns -ex. 9mm lugar ?

I inherited a Star model B 9mm pistol from an uncle who recently passed away. I know next to nothing about guns but after doing a little web research have found some info on the gun (made in Spain in 1942, ect.). The gun appears to me to be in good condition considering its age and I think it has probably been 20 yrs or so since my uncle ever fired it. I would like to get it cleaned and whatever else needs to be done to saftly use the gun. How much should I expect to pay to have it disassembled and cleaned? I live in Florida, do I need to register the gun? Thanks for any and all help.

Default Hmm...

I don't know much either, but it is probably a copy of the WWII era German luger, with an "e", if I recall correctly. That's the only time I've ever heard the name - but, like I said, I know very little about weapons.

Default luger

the 9mm Parabellum was introduced in 1902 in Germany for the Luger automatic pistol. Hence, 9mm luger.

just like .45ACP. ACP = Automatic Colt Pistol. the .45ACP cartridge was introduced for an autopistol manufactured by colt.

Default it uses the same ammo as current us issue barretta...

9mm luger or parabelum. it should have two **** one on each side grab these and pull up and back to open action. don't fire this thing!!!! it's a piece of trash. it war time production and quality is very low. sell it to a collector and get a modern gun. you'll probibly make money on the deal!

Default Some nomenclature.

A Luger is a type of pistol that the Germans used in WWII. Many of them fired the 9mm parabellum cartridge, also known as 9mm luger, also known as 9mmx19. There are a plethora of 9mm pistol cartridges out there, so it's always important to know exactly what cartridge your "9mm" pistol uses.

If there are gun shows in your area, you might carry it there (making sure it is unloaded) and talk to some dealers in antique arms.

There is no permit required in Florida for firearms ownership. Concealed carry does require a license.

Default Cleaning is probably around $35

take it to someone who really knows a lot about guns. It could be quite valuable, or next to worthless.
