DWM Luger 1920

DWM Luger 1920


The Luger (Pistole Parabellum or P-08) is perhaps the most aesthetically and ergonomically pleasing of all autoloading centerfire pistols. It is also one of the strongest, most accurate and most recognizable service pistols ever made. The majority of German Luger pistols were produced by DWM.

We believe it was made between 1920 and 1922 and probably exported to North America. This is because “Germany” is stamped at the front of the left frame rail in English. Otherwise, it bears the usual “crown over N” (for nitro) commercial German proof mark, “Geschert” (safe) by the safety lever, and “DWM” on the front toggle link. The serial number is stamped on the front of the frame and a mixmatch of serial numbers are stamped on most of the gun’s major parts.
