I do not have my books with me, but those markings are unit markings, so you can know who your gun belonged to.

I assume it is marked DWM on the toggle? Can you give us more information? Proofs, marking son the sides, top, bottom, serial number, suffix u8nder the serial number?

Markings on the holster?

Pictures, either digital or scanned in on a scanner?

yes its got the DWM markings. The serial number is 1546 and the suffix is C. There are 3markings on the right side. On the holster it says P.R.Hankee then it says Hyeres, France. sorry i dont have any pistures im trying to get some.

vfan, the unit marking is a bit odd; one would expect to find a numeral before the "R". Typically it would be...(number).R(regiment).M.G.(machine gun company)75.(weapon)28.

Later pieces, 1916, 1917 might be expected to indicate nonstandard marking but not a 1910 issued pistol. Take a hard look.

Photos of the pistol as well as the holster would be nice, especially the markings on the holster.

John, could you post the pictrues here on this forum, in that way they can stay with the posting? (at times those free sites or on a persons sites, the pictures disappear).

If you click on the quick reply, there is no way. But if you click on Reply to Topic, then there is a place to upload the pictures. There is also a tutorial under the help section on the main luger page.

Nice looking gun btw! Nice one, ;>)

Excellent find!
It might interest you that there is another Luger in the Still/Noll data base that is to the same unit but stamped weapon number 22. See below.
* 1910 DWM, s/n 521c: R(script).M.G.75.22. - (Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment 75, Maschinengewehr-Kompagnie, Waffe Nr. 22)

Another Luger not marked according to unit stamping guide lines. See page vii Imperial Lugers second edition.
* 1913 DWM, s/n 2045b : M.G.K.1.R.25. 75. - (Maschinengewehr-Kompagnie 1, 25 Infanterie-Regiment, Waffe Nr. 75)

Hello Jan,

Good to read you again. I hope that you are well, after a unexpected long stay between the white walls. Wish you a quick and full recovery.
Best regards!

According to Jeff Nolls excellent book (page 153)the Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment 75 was part of the 17 Res. Div., the 12 Landwehr Div. and the 211 Division during World War I.

See: the Histories of 251 Divisions of the German Army that participated in the War 1914-1918 page 219, 279, and 671.
