Your description of the serial number and proofs indicate that you have a commercial "Alphabet" (also called a 1920 commercial) DWM Luger produced during the mid-1920's and as such it would not have the usual right receiver inspection/acceptance stamps found on a military issue pistol. What you call an "N" with "-" over it sounds like a Crown/N proof. The barrel mark "8,83" is the bore diameter measured from the top of a land to the top of an opposing land. The Eagle/2 mark on the barrel MAY be an Eagle/N commercial proof applied in or after 1940 and would indicate a barrel change during the war years. (A picture of the Eagle/2 would be appreciated.)quote:Originally posted by koshnaranek
any idea why there are there no proofs on the starboard side of the of the reciever?
