Sounds to me so far that you got a good deal.

Lugers of all shapes and sizes, rare or not, go for about a grand ($1000) or higher from what I've seen. Granted it works and is in good condition, I would buy it. If you change your mind with it, it wouldn't be hard to resell, it's a freaking Luger.

It might be a good idea to research the markings and see if it's some special run though.

Well, it all depends on the exact variant and condition (pictures would help), but generally speaking any matching original finish Luger is going to be worth more than $500. Is it in 7.65mm or 9mm? Is the barrel 95mm or 101mm, or longer? I'm by no means a Luger expert but for $500 I doubt you can go wrong. Even the mismatched dip-blued Russian captures seem to go for that.

And yeah, an ex girlfriend owes me about $1000 I'm never going to see. I don't even really care about the money, but the false promises to pay it back are really insulting to my intelligence.

Uh, no. Sorry, but I don't find domestic violence all that funny.

I don't either. In fact, I almost beat the shit out of a guy yesterday because he was yelling violent things at a woman. And he was on my lawn

Can't you shoot people for being on your lawn where you live? You should have done that.
