An old Luger was passed on to me from my grandfather when he died a little over a year ago. I have had a really hard time identifying it from all of the variations that are in the gun books. I do have pictures if that would help. I could also easily help point out all of the differrent marks it has. I'm just not sure if this is a place where I can get help with this sort of subject. Ultimately I hope to sell the gun, but really need to find an accurate value first. Please let me know if anyone is good with these and would be willing to help! Thank you in advance!

a couple quick bits of info on it:
dwm manufacturer
3936 serial #
no year on the barrel or anywhere else
"geischert" under the safety
"germany" stamped under the barrel
barrel is approx. 3 3/4 - 4" long
on the side of the gun, there is a "N" with a crown above it
the number 36 is stamped on almost all of the parts (all #'s match)

You most likely have a 1923 .30 cal commercial. It is one of, if not the most common of Luger types in the US. In very good condition it might bring as much as $900 but more likely $500-$700 range.

Welcome to the forum. Pictures would really help with a value but I would tell you I agree with George on his estimates. For your info, it should have a wood bottom mag either plain or marked Germany

George and everyone...Thank You! I will try to put a coule pics up and we'll see. Just one thought: I borrowed 3 gun books from the local library and they all have slightly different info from book to book. The one that has the most info on Lugers says that the serial # of a 1923 Commercial should be from #73500 - 96000. Needless to say, I trust in the expertise of the people here who have helped me. Could I be reading this improperly?
