Question Artillery Luger sights- non fine tune rear, fine tune front

Do you have or have you seen an Artillery or L P08 with the sight combination of: non fine tune rear, fine tune front?

Yes, I wrote it correctly; a very few 1917 and 1918 Artillery lugers have been reported with the non fine tune rear sight, but fine tune front.

I'd like to hear from those who have this combination, but please only all matching pistols will be meaningful(mag mismatch ok).

Please post your serial number/suffix and date; pictures great if you have them.

In Jan Still's Luger book, only about 5% of L P08s have this combination.

The most common combination in 1917 dated pistols is both fine tuned sights; followed by fine tune rear, fixed front; third is both not fine tune, least common is the non fine tune rear and fine tune front.

In 1918 dated pistols, the both non fine tune sights(the large majority) are present, with a very few with non fine tune rear and fine tune front reported.

I have the more common variation/combinations, but would like to find this scarcer variety.

Thanks in advance for participating!

Thanks Tom,
that is the "standard" set up for sights in 1918.

Would make a great shooter for someone though!
