Looking for help identifying luger

1213 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  aaron
I inherited a luger from inlaws and am curious to date of manufacture, and any other info anyone may know about the gun.

Here is some info on the gun, and markings. (Please excuse my terminology, I am new to the Luger thing!)

.30 caliber luger.
Wood checkered grips, no markings on the outside.
One clip, no markings.

Top view - DWM logo

Front view underneath barrel top to bottom - "8736", "GERMANY","h" or possibly "k" (small case cursive).

Bottom view - Underneath barrel, Crown over N, 8736, h or k
- bottom side of lever "36
- next to trigger "36"

Right side - no markings

Back view - 36 behind rear sight

Left side - Crown over N just behind barrel (vertical)
- Crown over N on side of action (horizontal)
- 36 on tab that comes up when saftey is engaged
- GESICHERT under safety

Here are some pictures (I hope!)

Rob, Welcome to the forum. What I believe you have is a 1920 alphabet commercial Luger. Exported for sale to the US. Looks like it's in very nice condition. Approx. value is in the $600.00 to $800.00+ range, depending on condition. It is the most common Luger found. I have had 3 over the years. They all shot very well, and were very accurate. Nice Inlaws!


If you are still checking? Sorry, I lost this thread. Yes your Luger would be made circa 1923 or later.
