Anyone have a idea of how many 1915 military Lugers were produced ? And why is there no information on the 1915 in The Standard Catalog Of Luger ? I have a very low serial number (no letter and number under 1700)and was curious if that helps the value. Thanks.

That's pretty low production for 1915.
I acknowledge that prior to late 1914/15 DWM had routinely filled both commercial and contract purchases every year as well as German military orders since the end of 1908. The yearly contract and commercial production was relatively low (maybe 10-20 thousand pieces per year or much less in some years) and German army deliveries were typically 15-25 thousand with maybe 35,000 in 1914 due to the post August surge in army orders. My point is they basically doubled or tripled normal production during 1915 which is pretty notable. Of course this just accounts for P and LP 08 but DWM was also greatly increasing other production such as G98.
