I recently purchased a 1916 DWM Luger, in fair condition, which I hope is the first of many. The serial number is 9977 and I am curious to know how the serial numbers were chosen. Was it the 9977th gun manufactured in Berlin in 1916? Is it possible to find out to whom it was issed? Are Nazi era Lugers in more demand than WW1 pistols? I paid $1,000.00 for the pistol, holster and an extra clip, was the price in the ballpark or did they see this neophyte a mile away? Any help sis appreciated!
