I am reading my new copy of Weimar Lugers (had to get a new one, due to staining and smoke), and noticed this;

Under Charecteritics ...some have unnumbered receivers and unnumbered or mismatched breechblocks...

Is this just a best guess, or common? I mean, many collectors would say, heck, it is mismatched, its a shooter...

I have to assume so many have been found like this, that this is a commonlity of the 29 DWM???

"some have unnumbered receivers and unnumbered or mismatched breechblocks"
I have observed some 29 DWM's that were as stated above (am not inclined to guess). The 29 DWM shown in the link below, sn 8085t, has an unnumbered receiver, middle toggle link and breechblock; matching in the toggle train are the rear toggle link, main pin and firing pin.

POLICE 29 DWM, SN 8085t Jan C Still http://www.gunboards.com/luger/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=217

I would suggest a survey of original 29 DWM's in the "s", "t", and "u" serial range if you want to determine how frequently this occurs. The survey should include serial number, markings on the right receiver, unnumbered parts in the receiver/toggle assembly and if DWM or blank on the middle toggle link. Also, if sear or magazine safety, and the unit stamp.

hmmmm, I don't have a 29 DWM, so that makes it harder for me. What made me think, was that I have a late alpha and its breechblock is wonky, yet, the color is all the same, wear is the same, vet insists it was as he brought it home....
