John,

I have seen here in Europe about 15 ww1 navy lugers. All but one had mags with concentric circles, one (1917) had a mag with a plain wooden bottom. This mag had a matching # (longside placed), and a C/M navy acceptance stamp.
In Jan Still's book Imperial Lugers, page 178, you can find a pic of a simular fitted navy Luger. On page 187 Jan explains that as from the second variation of mags most had plain wood bottoms.

Some months ago I asked this question on another Luger forum and have never been able to obtain a definitative explanation. Hope someone here knows the answer.

I have seen authentic 1914-type Navy Lugers with both types of magazines.

JL et al, Starting in 1916 you will find both the concentric circle type wood bottom and the standard PO8 wood bottom in use in Navy issue lugers, but to be authentic, both should have the crown/M marking on military accepted navies. Th
