Any idea what proof mark this is?
It's a 1936, right frame, right side of barrel and breechblock just in front of the breech pin.
I haven't fond it in WOL.V1.
Thanks for any help.

The thing about world of lugers is that Costanzo tried to show every slight variation as a separate proof or acceptance.
I also think every serious collector should have a copy, but remember, its 30+ years old

Is there an updated source for luger proofs?
Any idea what this one is?
Thanks again.

They are proof marks and correct for a 1936 Mauser. there should be two inspection marks to the left as well, but that area is not shown in your photograph.

Yes, two DW/63's, one military because of the squared off "63" ( As I understand it from WOL)

Does the proof on the right (my picture above) have a name? Do we know when and why it was addd?

I believe the one on the far left is the British black powder proof added when the british proofs on the bottom of the barrel were added.

The Eagle on the barrel and receiver is a pressure proof. It signifies that the pistol survived test firing an over pressure round.

Vlim is correct. I have a '37 S/42 altered with a sear-safety in the 'u' block that is exactly like the first photos shown in this discussion.
