I think I am correct in stating that all 1908 Navy lugers and all 1914 model Navy lugers should have the large, rear toggle pin flange.

But what is proper for all model 1906 Navy lugers :

* 1906 Commercial Navy - large or small ?

* 1906 1st. Issue, Unaltered - large or small ?

* 1906 1st. Issue, Altered - large or small ?

* 1906 2nd. Issue - large or small ?

Would especially like to hear from 1906 Navy luger owners to let me know what they have on their pistols. No need to mention serial numbers, but it would be helpfull...if you want to have an "x" for one of the numbers...such as, # 280x...

Sorry for the delay, I missed your post. I am sure that the question on Navy pin flanges has been answered here before. However, I cannot find it. As I recall, all the 1906 Navies (altered and unaltered)and the P08 Navies have the standard pin and the 1908 and 1914 Navies have the large flange pin. If you find different information please let us know.

I have no information on the 1906 Commercial Navy.

Hi Jan,

I did do a search for the 1906 pin issue...here on this forum as well as on the Luger Forum. Saw discussions about the M1914 and M1908...but no mention of the M1906.

On the other Forum, Navy Luger collector Tom Armstrong has let me know that all M1906 should have the small flanged pin. I think the M1908 is when the larger flanged pins showed up. Collector Tom Heller concurred with this summary as well.

I also asked Mike Krause of San Mateo, CA. this same question last weekend. He also confirmed M1906 Navy lugers (including the commercial model) to have the small flanged pin, only.

I am hoping folks that might have any M1906 Navy lugers in their gun safes would take a look and let us know.

Would also be nice if anyone has some German Imperial or DWM documentation that would track the change in the flange size and the time it occured. Maybe some Kaiserliche Marine correspondence or specification info. that directs the change of the pin flange size...???
