It is probably a provisional unit mark pre 1922 issuance of the new Reichswehr unit marking directives. Such markings were frequently put in the area near the lanyard staple.

Don, No it does not. It appears to be a 1921 Dated DWM, four digit, b suffix, Army contract.

I'm with Geo. It's a Reichswehr provisional mark. Probably 3rd Infantry Regt. weapon #36. I have seen a few with a 3rd Regt. provisional mark, but none had complete grip strap markings. It appears that this one did, but they were scrubbed.

It could be 3rd Company 36th Regiment. If so, it would explain why the grip marks were scrubbed. The 36th Regtiment would have been dissolved after 1921 and no longer existed.

One of the nicest 1921's I have seen.

What does the circled S marking mean?
No one knows.
There is a good thread on the "mystery" of the circle S, if you search for "circle S" you will find lots of threads to read.

Thanks Klaus.
I can read a bit of what it says, but does it specify the location to be stamped for the luger pistol?
