I am attempting to identify a DWM Luger, 30 Luger caliber with 3.75 inch barrel, serial #5776. There are no markings on the receiver above the chamber. The DWM logo appears on top of the forward toggle link. The serial number appears above the trigger guard on the frame and below that, "GERMANY." The safety reveals "GESICHERT" when activated. The extractor reveals "GELADEN" in the left side when loaded. There is a crown with "N" below it situated horizontally on the left front side of the receiver next to the serial number. The same crown with "N" below it is situated vertically on the left side of the breech block. A "H" appears on the back of the trigger. A "J" appears inside the trigger plate. A "N" appears at the rear of the breech block. A "C" appears at the left bottom of the rear toggle link. A "N" appears on the lug beneath the chamber and a "C" to the right of that lug with a "U" and a "Y" to the left of the lug. The letters "P", "T", "O", "R", "Z", "S", "D", "U", "J" "L" and a reverse "N" appear beneath the grip panels in various locations (none together). The rear sight is a square notch (not "V" shaped) and the front sight is a dovetailed, serrated, squared style. All numbered parts match, including both grip panels and magazine, which has a wooden base, metal follower and sheet metal body.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

holy, welcome to the forum!

This is a commercial luger, made for export (or refurbished from WW1), the Crown N is the commerical marking. The "assorted" letters I have gernally seen from being refurbed, and we don't know enough about them to place any importance on them.

Please provide pictures of top, full sides, bottom, magazine, etc

Ed: Thanks for your insight into this pistol and your rapid reply. I have taken the photos you requested, but can't find out how to send them. I tried a "new topic" but doubt that it was sent. Now I need help in sending the photos as well as identifying this pistol. Kind of hopeless old man, eh!

If I determine how to send them, I will do so. Thanks, Holy

Welcome to the forum, do not worry about being helpless we all started somewhere.

The computor expert I am certainly not but here is what you need to do to post your pictures
1 Make sure your pictures are in a jpeg format under 300kb in size.

2 Next scroll down untill you find Weimar lugers and go to the heading 1920-1933 lugers.

3 Start a new topic and after writing your questions go to the paper icon and click onto this one to insert an image from your pictures file.

4 Click on browse and select your picture an click onto open and wait for the picture to load.Click onto upload holys post. wait for loading

5 Next you go back to the paperclip icon and repeat the procedure untill you have posted all your pictures.

6 you do not need to start a new topic with each picture just scroll down to the icon and follow the same thing untill you are satisfied.

7 Finally you click onto post your reply and there you go.

8 hope this helps.

Mike,

You need a digital camera with good MACRO capability if you are using conventional photography.

From your comments I suspect that you have a camera like mine; I can't get closer than 16" which does not provide sufficient detail.

I use a flatbed scanner for most of my closeups. I scan at 1200dpi and then resize for whatever the intended purpose. By scanning at such high resolution, you get excellent detail in blowups.

Hope this helps.

Luke
