Default 1916 DWM Luger Artillery

Unfortunately I can't give detailed information about this one. However I have a 1915 DWM Luger Artillery, photos of her, I will share later.

By the way, I live and work in Turkey. All the Luger photos I will share here will be belonging to Luger's which I saw/touched in Turkey.
I looked for some special marks in both 1915 and 1916 Artillery Luger's which might bond them to a special contract Ottoman with DWM. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any. If you believe that some of the marks are unusual, please tell me.

Kammer und Schlagbolzen detailliert:






For me as rookie, it is really not easy to take photos of inside of a chamber or a barrel.











I will post more photos of this Luger, but I need to upload them first ;-) .

Odd to see the fine tune front and rear sights on a 1916?

My 1916 has both front and rear fine tune sights.

Hi Evren, Welcome to the forum! Thanks for posting those excellent photos of your 1916 Artillery. Your gun appears to be in original, but well-worn condition, all except for those grips. They look as if they have been re-checkered and lacquered. I don't see any evidence of non German markings. Regards, Norm
