DWM 1917/1920 Double Date Police Luger Pistol with Matching Magazine
This is an example of a post-WWI German 1920 Police rework Luger that has a matching magazine. The Luger has the rust blued finish with the straw colored small parts with checkered walnut grips. The top of the chamber area has the double date markings of 1917 for the year of manufacture with 1920 stamped over that. It has the standard "DWM" markings on the front toggle. The left side of the barrel extension has the standard three Crown over script proofmarks, next to the Crown N commercial proof. The right side of the barrel and receiver rail also have the same Crown over N commercial proofs. The front grip strap also has the original unit issue markings of "S.L. Pol./5616" crossed out with the new unit markings of "SP/L" markings stamped on the lower front edge of the grip strap. The left side has the correct remnants of the police sear safety above the side plate. This pistol is fitted with a tin plated, unmarked magazine with the aluminum base that is marked "6294/2".
BBL: 4 inch round
Stock:
Gauge: 9 mm Luger
Finish: blue/straw colors
Grips: walnut checkered
Serial Number: 6294i
Condition: Very fine as Arsenal refurbished overall with 85% of the dull armory applied rust blued finish, with wear on the edges and high spots. The various small parts retain half of their straw colors overall. The grips are in very good plus condition overall with the right grip in better condition showing nice sharp checkering overall while the left grip is in very good condition showing even honest light wear across the tops of the checkering. This Luger has all visible matching parts to include the magazine as noted except for the grips which are unnumbered, with the right one having a small Waffenamt proof on the back side. A solid example of a desirable WWI Weimar era Police Luger.
