DWM, Luger, Artillery, 1915
Spectacular, all original finish DWM 1915 Artillery, early production, with no letter suffix. Serial number 1058. Cal. 9mmP. Standard early production DWM artillery with 8” barrel having fine tune front and rear sights. “1915” chamber date with intertwined “DWM” on middle toggle link and long sear bar. Major components are rust blued. Front sight, rear sight bar and grip screws are fire blued; take down lever, trigger, safety, ejector, and magazine release are strawed. Full serial number under barrel, on forward frame and on left side of receiver. Extensive disassembly shows all matching small parts including the firing pin and each grip panel. Unnumbered fire blued rear toggle pin as is correct for this variation. Fitted with unnumbered but proofed Erfurt magazine. Condition: approximately 99% bright original rust blue with minimal sharp edge wear and a few freckles on front and backstrap. Strawed parts show more discoloration, as expected, but no suggestion of enhancement. Grips with sharp checkering, small area of blunting on right side as evident in images, with no discernible cracks or chips. Same high condition magazine. Near mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. One of the nicest 1915 dated Artilleries available, that should please the most discriminating collector.
