Nice pistol Garfield. Both looking at Noll's book and my own experiance suggests that 1910 saw a preponderance of P08s go to cavalry units. In the same manner, alot of 1911s are marked to Train units.

It seems to suggest that the army had set priorities as to what type of units would get the new pistol first.

Garfield, I meant that you don't see Ulanen (or I don't at least) very often. Very nice gun, I am glad you could show it to us.

The below table of cavalry and support marked lugers supports your observations.

LUGER LUGERS LUGERS
YEAR CAVALRY* SUPPORT**
1908 ---16 ------ 6
1910 ---70 ------10
1911 --- 8 ------39
1912 --- 1 ------17
1913 --- 3 ------ 7
1914 --- 4 ------ 1

*Cavalry includes: Dragoon, Ulanen, Hussar, Kurassier, Jager zu Pferde, Chevauleger, Schwere Reiter Regiment, and Karabiner Regiment.

**Support includes: ammunition column, train, train/medical, medical, telegraph/telephone, military school, and other.

Plan to post 4 pages of Luger unit markings statistics as soon as I figure out how to scan computer screen legible copies.

Extremely nice Luger Bill. Even without the unit marking it is a great gun. With the marking it is very special indeed. I find these cavalry Lugers particularly desirable. Wish I had one. Thanks for showing it off.
