A good friend of mine has been trying to sell this 1915 LP08 to me. Got one, don't need it but...it has one of those enigmatic stampings discussed here some time ago, the dubyah "W" on the trigger guard.

Can you all rehash some of the theories on this again? Here are a few of his photos.

How about input from the members with pertinent data on any such Lugers they might have?

Jan, you're a "site owner-operator" can't this all be tied together in a single thread? I'd like to build a note book on this subject.

Geo,

If you click and drag your mouse to highlight any discussion, you can cut & paste it over to a MS Word document and all fonts and photos of the original posting will be dropped into the Word document. You can easily then pick up all similar topics and build one Word document with all related postings, photos, fonts, etc. from Jan's forum...

"can't this all be tied together in a single thread?"
I am not sure what you want to do. Maybe I missed something. It is good to keep threads with numerous photographs fairly short so there are not downloading problems with slower computers. Also, the author of the thread may want it kept separate. If you want to write a summary article tying everything together, post it, a link to the other articles will suffice for a reference. As far as I am concerned you can copy text and photographs from my article and use it however you want. John Coe wrote the "W" LP08 article (link in my article). In any case let me know what you want to do and I will help. (Remember Ed Tinker is the computer smart person)

Here is another one that popped up at the SOS. It is a 1915 LP08 with no unit marks but some rather interesting stampings in the original numbered grips.

I believe I read a thread here some time ago regarding a mark similar to that on the grips. It appears to be a shield with three stag antlers stacked horizontally. Similar objects are seen on the Wurtemberger Wappen.

Note that the marking is on the upper end of one grip and the lower end of the other.

I have a 1908 DWM Luger with a "W" on the backside of the trigger guard. It is serial number 847a, marked on the barrel and frame. It unit marked "A.M.XIII.5.22." on the grip. No hold open latch. No year of manufacture on it.

I am not a Luger expert. Worked with Ron Smith, Weimar Police and keoki7 in determing what it was. They believe it is a 1908 first military issue.

It has some mismatched parts if that makes a difference for your date collection:

47 - extractor
47 - receiver
47 - locking bolt
47 - slide plate
47 - trigger
47 - extractor
47 - firing pin

55 - breech lock
55 - fwd toggle link
82 - rear toggle link (RC stamp on it)
