Marcus, your gun is very interesting to many people because it has a Unit Marking, and also, there were only about 10,000 DWM's made that year. Since your's is marked 1920, that means it received the Reichswehr Property stamping, not a true date, although many were marked in that year.

If, as a parts gun, then it is worth around the amount you specified, $450-$600, maybe more to some collectors who wanted the unit marking.

Pictures would help.

And to the membership, I came across this old posting, e-mailed Marcus and he immediatly replied, i told him somehow we missed his posting and I felt bad about it!

Hi Marcus,
The unit mark is for a Reichswehr unit. Minenwerfer(Mortar)Company of the 12th Infantry Regiment weapon #8. A very neat and not often seen mark. If the condition is as you say a reblue then it is in the range that you guessed. Which is very unfortunate with that unit mark.
