Just...

...be sure its not some kind of rare collectors item, otherwise the 30 cal is just a necked down 9mm, same mag and a better caliber would make that a good rebarrel. Keep the old barrel tucked away somewhere in case it becomes a collectors item! Lugers do that.

Montello, I have not seen the pistol yet, but my intention, if I buy it, is to rebarrel it because its for sure the barrel is in bad condition-When I say rebarrel I mean not changing the barrel but resizing the existing barrel-I had this done years ago in a 7.63 Mauser Broomhandle by a guy in Montana,I dont remember well, I'll look in my papers-The Mauser works allright so I hope the Luger works

I think you mean "rebore" the original barrel to 9mm Luger, right? Might be cheaper to just buy and fit a 9mm luger barrel (SARCO and others stock them in various lengths) than to have a shop rebore the original one.

lugar barrel info

It is easy to reline one in 9mm. As was stated it works good. Some guys make their own liners out of MG barrels and works good. A whole upper might be another option. Sunfish
