I apparently overlooked having the serial range of the two pistols in question as 25xxx. This is exactly what he said, his 'x's, not mine. Is this of any assistance???????? Please read my post under "Single digit 1938" before you reply.

Look forward to seeing your information on the 1903 "French" Lugers. These are rare. I have only examined one. It had a 4 inch 7.65 cal barrel, short frame, flat toggle faces, 3 piece toggle lock, and new extractor. The serial numbers reported are 25013, 25019, 25024, 25031, and 25035. (see page 11, Imperial Lugers)

The serial number range is correct if it falls in the approximate 25000-25050 range. I read your post under "Single digit 1938" and hopefully you have come upon a legitimate collection. I envy your disposable income and wish you good fortune in your acquistions. If indeed the 1903 French pistols are correct, you have found a treasure and we all will certainly appreciate several photos once they are in your hands. Please see my photo under your "03 French" thread as a preview of what you might expect.
Best of luck,
Ron

heckinohio,

Thanks for the additional info on the French Lugers. The 25xxx is a useful approximation indicating the possibility that they are straight goods; it is, of course, not useful in the actual determination, nor useful in assembling a database of serial numbers. This is why people are always encouraged to get bayond the "xx" tradidion and post full numbers.

I'm among the group looking forward to a thorough report on these guns once you have completed your fortuitous acquisition of these significant Lugers.
