This is a very fine example of an early DWM Model 1900 “American Eagle” commercial Luger pistol.  These pistols were the first true commercial contract Luger pistols produced by DWM and can be found in the 2,000-20,000 serial number range with this pistol falling midway in the production.  This pistol has the early production features such as the long frame, dished toggles with toggle lock on the righe side, recessed breechblock, 4 3/4″  fast tapered barrel, grip safety and no stock lug.  This pistol is not marked Germany, indicating it remained in Europe which also verifies how it was factory modified to add the hold-open latch.  More than likely it was liberated after WWII.  In addition this specific pistol has the second pattern thumb safety lever that has the high-domed, cross-checkered pattern.  The lower safety area is unmarked and left brightly polished.  It is correctly serial numbered in the commercial fashon with the full serial number on the front of the frame and the underside of the barrel, with no German export markings, which is how it was modified for the hold-open latch.  It is complete with one magazine with the nickel plated body and unnumbered wooden base.

CONDITION:  Very fine as partially refinished with 85% of the original rust blued finish, with a professionally restored, authentic rust blued finish present on the grip straps and trigger guard bow.  The walnut grips are also in very fine condition overall with a nice matching dark brown color distince checkering on both sides and some minor compression nicks on the right side.   The pistol retains 95% of the re-straw colors on the small parts. 

This very good, early American Eagle…$4,200.00.

DWM 1917 Dated 1933 Police Rework Luger With Holster (SOLD)

8. (105P) DWM 1917 Dated 1933 Police Rework Luger With Holster – Serial #3992a, 9mm Luger cal., 4″ round barrel, blue finish, walnut grips. The chamber is dated 1917 and the toggle has the “DWM” monogram. The pistol is a Nazi Police rework as most features are of that era. The barrel has ah eagle/63 proof on the left side, PT/eagle proof on the right and “S/42″ along the bore marking on the underside. Unidentified crown proof is stamped on the toggle link. Matching full serial number on the fame (with “a” suffix) and barrel extension, with the partial serial number (92) on the “SU” proofed takedown latch, sear, safety bar, thumb safety lever, extractor, toggle and toggle link. Straw finished small parts, police sear safety, checkered grips and Hannel Schmeissen marked magazine numbered to the pistol. Complete with a black leather holster with “H.J.S.” carved on the back (the only visible marking).

CONDITION: Excellent as arsenal refurbished. The pistol retains nearly 97% refurbished blue finish with some thinning to a brown (mostly on the side plate and back-strap) with some moderate wear at the muzzle and stock lug. The small parts retain 90% original straw color. The grips are very fine with some minor nicks in the overall crisp checkering. This excellent Luger is mechanically excellent. The holster is fair with missing inner strap, broken latching strap, missing cleaning rod pouch and take-down pouch flap, a tear under the magazine pouch and replacement belt loops…$2,500.00.

SOLD! Thank you John.
