Have a German Luger with the DWM on the toggel. The S/N is 77xx and the only stamps on are "Made in Germany" and the proof mark. I need more information on the gun please. Blue book lists it as being made in 1900. The cal. is .30. On the front of sight is a "D". There is a loop mark below the S/N on the front of the fram. The number 14 is on the rear of the gun just below the rear sight. This is all that I can find on the gun. Should I be looking for more marks and is there a sight some place for just Lugers?

    Was there a Italian manufacturer of lugers in and around 1944?
    I have a chance to get a luger that I'm told was made 1944 by some Italian mfg I have not seen it yet and was locking for info before wasting time.
    Thanks for any help. ~ Gary

    No real questions, just a mention that today is the anniversary of Georg Luger's birthday. FYI: Luger P08 pistol inventor"Fast is good, but accuracy is everything.."Wyatt Warp

    I have a Luger 7.65 marked DWM 98% with holster. The safety release is marked in english SAFE. Also a holster and it does not have a clip holder. Serial 901xx all parts with matching numbers. This gun has been in my family about 60 years and has only been test fired during that time.

    I've got this Luger. Under the barrel and on the trigger guard, it has the number 23XX. Is this the serial number? If so, can anybody tell me what model this weapon is or what year it was produced? If not, then where can I find the serial number?

    I run with scissors.

Several parts are marked the the no 36. It has 3 eagles on the receiver part of the pistol. One with the no.136, one with 135 and one with the swastika. It has an eagle with the swastika on thebarrel. It has the eagle and the swastika on the toggle. It has Gesichert where the saftey is and what looks like a cursive h under the serial number above the trigger on the outside of the trigger guard. Any info and approx value I would appreciate.

    I've had a good experience posting this forum since becoming a member this last month. I've learned that a picture is a valuable asset to include with my query.
    I now have another question that I hope will be acceptable to those in this group. I'm seeking information and guidance as to value of this piece:

    Anybody know for sure if 1900 DMC American Eagle Luger made a presintation luger (nickel,with gold plating on the trigger,top of the toggle mag. releise,safty)

    Of course I'm out of my mind. It's dark and scary in there.

    That's like asking what's the going rate for a 1972 Chevy. You need to give complete details and/or post detailed pics.
