I'm looking at buying this it from a pawn shop says it is a DWM Luger P.08 Navy 1920'2 9mm all the Navy lugers I have seen don't look like this one the barrel does not have a serial number but just a crown stamp under the barrel. No import marking no made in Germany or the word Germany the grips match the gun, the magazine is just a plain wooden bottom not marked. Looks to me maybe it's a re-work I see no evidence that the chamber has been ground off if there was a date on it. I'm no expert but the asking price is $700 maybe being sold for just as a shooter. Thanks for any input.

Well, I am no expert. I would say that even a shooter 6 inch is worth a $1,000
The rear sight is not a navy sight. My guess is that it was made into a 4 inch and then a 6 inch was placed on it. I can not see any numbers underneath on the barrel

No numbers under the barrel but just a crown and what looks like an N maybe a rework after 1920?

Hi Rhodesia, you have an interesting assemblage of parts. The frame is most likely from a P08 (Army Luger), the receiver is from a 1906 or 1908 P04 (pre 1916) Navy Luger and the barrel is an unnumbered spare for a long frame Navy (1906 or 1908). The toggle train is most likely from a P08 (Army gun). It should be a good shooter if it works.
Regards, Norm

Thank you I new it must be a re-work of some sort by any chance what year maybe? all the numbers have the same fonts was it common to re-work these and maybe sell these on a commercial side after World War One? I got a chance to shoot it functions greats no flaws. Maybe $700 is a good price just for a shooter since it has no collector value

$700 for a bonafide shooter you got to test. That’s a great deal. I wouldn’t think twice about it. Buy it and enjoy!

Thank you it was either the re blued 1940 chamber dated luger 41 code on the toggle all matching except the two magazines who ever decided to re blue it did a very crappy job they even blued the safety lever, the trigger, and the take down lever as well. what was odd on that one they had buffed the whole luger to where you can just barely see any of the numbers let alone the chamber date.
So the oddball 6 inch barrel luger for $700 would have been a better choice even if it is a bag of parts but it shoots fine with no issues even if the upper receiver is a bit too long for the lower frame seems to function just fine.
