DWM originally built this Model 1908 Luger in 1911 for the Imperial German Army. After seeing service in World War 1 and the defeat of Germany this Luger remained in Germany and was reworked for the Weimar-era German police force. During the rework it was fitted with sear and magazine safeties (as all police pistols were), and any worn parts were removed and replaced with new un-numbered or renumbered parts. This example has a complete sear safety, a partial magazine safety, and an un-numbered trigger, take-down lever, and firing pin. The blue finish on this Luger still has some areas showing wear but still has a handsome look to it overall. Most of the wear is on the high edges, sideplate, and grip straps where you expect to see it on a police carried and used gun. The bore in this Luger is excellent, bright and clean with sharp lands and grooves in the rifling. The checkered Walnut grips are in good condition overall but show some wear to the checkering and a couple of chips off of the left grip panel. Both grips fit the gun perfectly. All of the controls on this Luger are in perfect working order and the toggle action locks up perfectly into battery. We have no doubt that this Luger would make an excellent shooter. It comes with one post-war aftermarket magazine that appears to be in good working order. If you have been looking for an affordable Luger in 9mm for your collection this 1911-dated DWM would be a great choice.
