    You show a Langenhan FL Selbstlader "Army Model" or Model 1, 1915-1918 or so. The serial number is high in the total of about 64000 made and the grooved wood grips look cheaper than early checkered wood or common hard rubber. A late war example, maybe.

    The right side markings started out as F.L. Selbstlader D.R.G.M 625233-623251; patent numbers, pretty much.

    The safety looks beat up if not homemade.

    The big screw at the rear and the stirrup screws on the side are all that keep you from eating the separate breechblock. Keep them all the way in if you shoot it.

    An "FL Selbslader", I think. WWI-era German military issue. Look for it in WHB Smith's Book of Pistols and Revolvers.

    Here is a exploded view, off the net. Allot of the kraut guns were hand fitted. Because of this I wouldn't be buying a safety off the net without return privileges. Even if you can find one for a pistol that has been out of production for 95 years.
