Hi Tom, Here are a couple more for your list:
265a 173.R.M.G.2.
9615a 15.R.3.2. (the R is cursive) . Has matching # magazine.
As someone who has considerable experience with lists of this kind, let me offer some advice. Unit marks that contain a cursive R should be noted, it's important, and any dealers description, such as "Personal property of von Ribbentrop" should be put in quotation marks!
Good luck with your new endeavor.
Regards, Norm

First Issue Lugers # 23 and 36 both have an identical unit mark of "K.12." The table has a "?" mark after both unit mark entires. To clearlify this unit mark, the "K" is for Kriegsschule, waffen 12. Unfortunately, the specific war school was not indicated in this unit mark. There is a thread on this forum providing further details associated with these Lugers and their unit marks.

Hi Tom,
* Please add my 1st Issue S/N 9976a w/ no grip strap unit marking. This example does have the script "W" on the trigger guard...meaning still unknown.
* Hold-Open has been added.
* I'm sure you thought of doing a "search" for first issues in this Forum. Quite a number of 1st issue posting w/ S/N's and unit marking questions.
* Also, Jan Still's "Central Axis Pistol" book has a S/N listing of First Issue's as I recall.
* Hope you post and maintain an updated listing on this thread/Forum for all to benefit. I applaud your efforts.
* Hope this helps.

Hi Tom -

It sounds like you may be hitting the 80,000 character limit because you are cutting and pasting your embedded table from another source.

If you are accustomed to working in HTML-like code with markup tags, you can edit the file in source mode (the leftmost button on the edit bar, the one that looks like a small A / large underlined A). If you open your original post in that mode, you may find a lot of text that can be deleted without harming the content of the post. Make a backup of everything first before you make any changes.

This process is how I have to make changes in the 1908 Bulgarian list when a new gun comes up since the editor here doesn't offer a graphical way to insert rows in a table. Once the rows are there you can switch back to "regular" edit mode to fill them in if you wish.

Hopefully this makes sense, if it doesn't I will be glad to try and assist further.

Mark
