Good Evening,

I'm new to this forum, and I brought home my first Luger today. The purchase was completely coincidental - I found this gun in a Pawn Shop and purchased it right away after doing my home work. Here is what I got:

DWM Commercial - 1908 (number block puts it in 1907?)

*serial number: 45269
*proof marks on left receiver: crown over B, U - barrel is marked crown over B, U, G
*Stamped GERMANY: No
*Recoil spring well spur or straight: Not sure what that means - field stripped it today but not sure
*c/X c/X c/X military proofs: No Military Proofs
*Any additional noteworthy characteristics:
(1) All matching serial numbers (excluding grips); Mag serial # on wood base is 630 a
(2) No stock lug, no hold-open
(3) Gun has aged well - I can take pictures if neede

Default Any Info?

I bought this DWM luger a while back and was told it was a 9mm. 9mm luger rounds did not fit, I believe I have a 7.65 parabellum (.30 luger). all parts match with the last 2 numbers of the 4 digit serial stamped on them.
On the bottom of the 3 AND 5/8 barrel I can see a crown over top of a N, under that is the serial number and directly under that is a cursive N.
All parts match, the bottom half of the weapon was previously re-blued, but looks to be done only to certain areas that were previously corroded. top half of weapon is original.
I have crappy pictures but will get better ones if needed.
Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you

Sergio,

Does the Swiss gun have commercial proofs (c/BUG) or Swiss Military proofs?

Hi Dwight

Absolutely commercial proofs, it's a 1st Series, and first Variation (frame made for the low button magazine, and low button magazine).

Sergio,
I believe that is the highest serial number that I can remember that still has an unrelieved frame. That is a very scarce variation and I would very much like to see some photos! Swiss Commercial Lugers are much less common than military pieces and one that early and still unmodified is a treasure.

Hi Ron,
Actually I was "over enthusiastic" and had already posted several photos in my album, then I realized that many Moderators didn't have many photos of Lugers in their "albums" and I confess I felt a bit ridiculous so I deleted mine.
Anyway I enclose a couple of snaps, I'll take a few more if necessary; this is one of my best Lugers, the only problem is the magazine that although it has got a low button, it's a "military" one.
Regards

Sergio

That is a beautiful gun! I wish I had known you sooner. I sold a Commercial flat button magazine last year. My Swiss #109 is military so I didn't need the magazine. Sorry

Yes, it is a shame, it's quite difficult to find a flat button commercial magazine, and they are quite expensive.

I just downloded your data base and noticed I have a few numbers not on it, including a couple old type frames. If you would like them please PM me your USPS address and I'll mail them to you. I also have a lot of old hard copy lists from World of Luger and Simpson, though I notice your key says dealers lists have been included.
