Default 1923 DWM/Krieghoff Commercial

Serial 6674i
This is a seldom seen Krieghoff variation, and certainly a very early one.

The back frame of this gun is stamped Krieghoff, and the stamp appears odd. However, there is provenance of another struck exactly the same in an old Luger reference book, so I am inclined to believe that the stamp was in some way damaged when these guns were marked, and that the gun is correct.
A forger would have done a much better job.
Considerable halo-ing is seen around the Krieghoff Suhl stamp.

Caliber 7.65 Luger.
Stamped DWM on the toggle, vertical C/N on the left side frame, and C/N sideways on the breechblock.
C/N on underside of barrel, commercial style numbering on gun.
Marked Germany on right side of upper frame just behind barrel.
Plain wood bottom mag.

Sorry, I take that back. I have no problem with the horse you rode in on.
