I am reposting this pistol because my previous post and replies were lost when the server crashed.

Nice 1918, that was then marked with the 1920 Reichswehr Property Stamp (not a date), then was taken into police use (evidence by the Sear Safety, put on after 1933). The police holster looks like a nice one also.

To repeat my previous evaluation of the grip strap marks, I believe there are three successive marks:

So.I.631. - 1919-21 mark for the Sudost (Southeast) district of the Berlin police. Not sure if considered Sicherheitspolizei or Schutzpolizei at this time.

S.B.So.I.631. - 1922-23 mark to conform to 1922 orders for stamping weapons of the Schutzpolizei Berlin Sudost. Same unit and weapon number as previously.

S.B.15423. - Marked when the weapons inventory for all districts was apparently consolidated, sometime prior to 1932. Unsure whether this corresponded to a reorganization of the Berlin Police to eliminate district administrations.

Any other interpretations?

August,
I couldn't email you so will try to contact you this way. I'm planning to post/publish an article on my theory of Berlin police "triple marks" and would appreciate permission to use the above photo of your grip strap. I will, of course, credit you unless you prefer that I not.

Thanks for your assistance.

* Leather issued and controlled by L.Z.St.Stgt. per holster's marking.
* L.Z.St.Stgt. = Leder-Zuweisungs-Stelle, Stuttgart = Leather Allocation District office, Stuttgart.
* The L.Z.St.Stgt. was positioned to support the Imperial Army's XII(KW) district's General Command location in Stuttgart. KW = Koeniglich Wuerttemberisch = Royal Wurttembergian.
* No conclusive way to tell if this leather followed its companion pistol after WWI. However, it was subsequently marked with this pistol's Mfg's. S/N during the Weimer period by the police.
* Hope this helps.

Augie,
If you're out there somewhere, I would like to have your permission to publish your photo of the grip strap mark on this Luger in an article I'm preparing on the unit marks of the Berlin Schutzpolizei. I will credit you unless you prefer I not.

A little late, but use my photo with credit. It would be a pleasure to see a copy of what you are referring to. My email is [email protected].
