Pictured here is a 1917 DWM P.08 SN 9216 with replacement barrel marked 42 and E/655.
Obviously it was a Long P.08 befor the rework.
The right side of the receiver is stamped E/ HZAJC3 ( Heeres-Zeugamt ..., Army equipment depot ... ).
So far, so good. But what is the meaning of the additional eagle stamping ??

Any help will be appreciated.

The additional Eagle on the right side of the reciever looks to me similar to the Austrio-Hungarian Empire proof shown on p 59 of Jan Still's Military Pistols of Imperial Germany... Volume 1.

I have no knowledge of whether that is what it is, or what it would be doing on this pistol.

Why do you feel it was obviously a LP08 before the rework?

"Why do you feel it was obviously a LP08 before the rework?"

It is really hard to tell from the photos, but it looks like the receiver is notched for the artillery sight.
