I just acquired my first two artillery model lugers (both 1917 DMW, one stamped "Germany"). I'm curious as to why only one has an adjustable front site and what prompted the modification?

Hi Roy,
Early Artillerys were equipped with fine tune sights. They were phased out beginning in 1917. 1917s can be found with fine tune front and rear. Or just the rear sight. 1918s are rarely found with either.
I would assume to expedite production and were not needed.
