Default 1918 dwm

Morning All. First time visitor, and first post.

I have 1918 DWM 9mm Luger. All matching except for Magazine. Reasonably good condition.

My question: on the back of the grip, there is what appears to be a Unit Marking. 11/419 N6.

Does anyone have an idea? I've had no luck finding anything.

Hi. Am a new member. Have a 1918 DWM , with regimental markings on grip.according to other posts, the "419" had companies report to the Russian front, then reassigned to the big battle Eastern front, at the Somme.My gun has very little wear as far as the internal barrel condition, as well as any toggle marks. But...the exterior has lots of holster wear marks. Matching numbers. As if it was carried a lot.
My question is ...are there any records left as to who was.assigned this gun? The company within J.R.419 indicates gun issued "23".

There is virtually no way to ascertain which gun was issued to which soldier, short of stumbling across the serial number in someone’s soldbuch.
