I have a early 1900s commercial Luger. Can anyone tell me the approximate date of manufacture based on the s/n 58374? I've looked seemingly everywhere for this info, but have had no luck. Thanks for any info.

David this is out of my area, so hopefully others will chime in. More information can help us (me in particular), as I am looking at Imperial Lugers by Jan Still and it has the sn range spread out a bit... Give us the barrel length, markings on sides, top if any, proofs, etc.

The serial number of your Luger would indicate it could be either a 1906 Model or a 1908 Model as there is some overlap in reported sn's. If it has a grip safety it would be a 1906 and if not it is probably a 1908 Model. Any additional info and pictures would sure help.

David,

The details of your Luger will be of interest. I am doing a survey of early comercial serial range pistols, and yours is in an area where I have very little data. Particularly, I would appreciate it if you would post: whether or not it has GERMANY stamped on it; whether or not it is an American Eagle; if it is a grip-safety gun, does the safety go full width of the grip strap; does it have a proof mark, and if so what is it? and what is the caliber, .30 Luger or 9mm?

Thanks in advance for the info.
