Hello All!! I am ecstatic after finally completing my G-Date Group. This represents a few years of effort to get them all. They are all matching and the two B|90 G-Dates have matching magazines.

I am still playing with my camera, so I will post the Waffenamt Marks and more photos when I become a bit more comfortable with the system.

Enjoy!!!

Outstanding display of the six markings variations of G date Lugers. A terrific accomplishment. You are a true collectors collector.

I am looking forward to the detailed photographs.

Thanks for the complements!!

Doc, I'm not really sure without digging out some data. I bought my first Luger in the mid 1970's. I think I got my first G-Date somewhere in the early 1990's, could have been mid 1990's. So say about 10 years.

The first two G-Dates were bought to get the two variations mentioned in Jan's Third Reich Luger Book. At the time, I didn't realize that there were not only sub-variations, but sub-sub-variations. I managed to pick up three or four different WaA Marked G Dates, then after some emails to and from Bill Munis, I finally figured out there were six.

Then I begame interested in the population of the various markings and that's when I started to research the G Date, with much help from the two Forums. That lead to the chart that I posted. BTW, I picked up numbers 5 and 6 this year.

I think there are about 36 different variations of the Military Mauser beginning with the K Date and ending with the last German byf 42 (not including the Portuguese and Bulgarian Contracts).

I'll let you know when I get 'em all!!!

Walter, just prior to to WW2, the germans hid the company names and also tried to hide dates. So, you will see and hear of K dates, G dates and then there are S code lugers.

S code were made by Simson

K = 1934
G = 1935
