Just got it today,finally. It is a M1907 Roth-steyr made in Steyr #22xxx and is marked W eagle 10, the ring on the grip is marked
6 L.U.R #129 for the Landwehr Uhlan Regiment. Any ideas on finding who number 129 was???I am looking for history on the regiment, I do know that there was 1688 men in the unit and they were commanded by Oberst Ferdinand Haberman and the unit was in Rzeszow and Debica which is in Poland.

Thanks for your excellent photographs and presentation.
I have no information on the identification of Austria- Hungarian units or markings. However, your estimate that 6LUR signifies: 6 Landwehr Uhlan Regiment/weapon no 129 appears reasonable. Perhaps a member can verify that such a World War I Austria-Hungary unit exists. In any case it appears to be a very rare unit stamp and a collectors prize.
