After receiving quite a few responses from my previous survey, and some correspondence with collectors and hitting the books again, I have come to the realization that I need to expand the data base (again!) in order to paint a complete picture of early Luger production characteristics.

So, I'm asking everyone to look into their collections one more time, and send me the following information:

For all categories of Model 1900 Lugers in the commercial number series including Commercial, American Eagle (including Test Eagles), Bugarian, and Swiss Commercial (but -not- the Swiss military contract)--

Model
Proof mark, or its absence
Swiss cross present on barrel, or not
Grip safety lever, narrow (half grip strap width) or wide
thumb safety type, 1 (flat, checkered); 2 (raised, checkered); 3 (raised, grooved)
serial# placement on takedown lever--right end, face, or under
stamped GERMANY or not

For all categories of Model 1902 Lugers in the commercial number series including Commercial, American Eagle, French Commercial (1903) and Carbines--

Model
Proof mark, or its absence
Grip safety lever, narrow (half grip strap width) or wide
thumb safety type, 1 (flat, checkered); 2 (raised, checkered); 3 (raised, grooved)

For all categories of Model 1906 Lugers in the commercial number series including Commercial, American Eagle, Navy Commercial, Carbine, and Swiss Commercial (but -not- Military)--

Please send me your information at [email protected] or post it here. As always, I will maintain the anonymity of ownership.

Everyone has my continued thanks for your participation, I'm finding the results will be pretty interesting.
