S/42 Luger. K date. Serial number 941. B90 with S91 beside it followed by some swiggle figure.

Letter "a" or "Q" on front under serial number.

Clip has matching serial number. Looks like the letter "g" below serial number. Below that is a set of wings with the number 83 or 63 below it.

Last two of serial number is on all other parts.

I do not have the indents Jan mentions in his first post.

I know nothing about what these marks mean. I recently inherited the gun.

I don't think this gun was used much. There isn't a scratch on it.

Gun is black and grip is brown.

Does everything sound consistant?

Thanks

Jim

Sturgess, in Bochardt & Luger Automatic Pistols, page 469 shows only the following two K date right receiver acceptance stamps:
037 037
B90 S91

Note: This is only a partial list. He apparently decided not to list all four of the acceptance stamps documented in the first post above and repeated below:
037 037
037 B90
037 S91
B90 S91

Jan,
It is my understanding that the 037 B90 and the 037 S91 are quite rare.

Sorry, but a member made me realize that the first digit could be a 3 instead of an 8. As soon as possible I'll give the correct number.

The number is without doubt 8676, so I wonder if in my possession there is a strange second subvariation with a scriptic s on the toggle mark code, gothic s on the extractor and scriptic s inside the square panel on the left side blocking the opening in such an high serial number. I confirm the luger hump. All numbers match. See pictures on my thread "Strange k date".

Last update on my k date n 8676
Sorry, Jan, but evidently in Europe we don't use the same font names.
According to the general US naming, my k date has a gothic s on the toggle mark and another little gothic s on the inside of the side plate. It bears a scriptic s on the extractor.
I confirm B90 S91 and frame hump.
