Description:

The Luger Carbine was intended as a substitute for the light hunting rifles then available on the market, being highly compact when disassembled and light and easy to maneuver when together. Ramp blade front and 300-meter sliding notch rear sights, the "DWM" monogram on the toggle, "crown" proofs on multiple parts, and matching numbers on the majority of the parts. No import markings (either the classic "GERMANY" or the later style name and address) or non-German proofs are visible. Fitted with a checkered Schnabel tip forearm with integral booster spring, a pair of checkered grips, nickel finished magazine with unmarked wood base, and a correct replacement "541" numbered detachable shoulder stock with a checkered wrist and a serrated horn buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 90% of the original blue finish, showing some light dings and dents, minor spotting concentrated on the muzzle, and some light cycling and high edge wear. The forearm has been restamped to match the pistol, originally being numbered "113", and the wood is fine overall, with some light dents and scuffs. Mechanically excellent.
