I will attempt to post a educational thread in which you, the viewer, will take your Mauser luger that you have in hand and compare features with what is posted here on this thread to determine for yourself what a truly unique piece of Luger lore this Luger has really become. You will not be graded , but let's see if you can detect what features are different on your Mauser from the Simson posted. Let's begin ;

Excellent photographs and presentation of an undated Simson.
Comparing a Simsom to a Mauser is a little like comparing apples and oranges or a DWM to an Erfurt..

The most prominent difference is that the Simson has aceptance stamps on all parts, the Mauser does not (except the early K date.). The Simson has its full serial numbers on its grips, the Mauser usually has only two digits.

There are a number of small machining differences. The most prominent is the Mauser stock lug has a hole at the top , the Simson does not.
John please point out the all the differences.
