Description:

Fixed sights, with the American Eagle on the chamber, "DWM" on the front toggle link, and the following early Luger features: dished toggles with toggle lock on the right side, recessed breechblock, "fat" profile 9mm barrel, flat recoil spring, grip safety and no stock lug. The small parts are straw finished, with a pair of finely checkered grips and a nickel finished magazine with a hardwood base correctly marked "Cal 9m/m". Parts are matching overall in the "commercial" pattern. The front of the frame is marked "GERMANY", appropriate to an import of the era.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 80% of the original blue finish, showing some bright edge wear, mild spotting and areas of brown patina concentrated on the gripstraps, and mild handling marks overall. The number "57" has been applied to the underside of the frame in black marker, with a faded but still legible "57" in faded red marker on the magazine body. The trigger and other parts retain 60% of the original straw color, with the remainder having turned a mixed gray, and similar aging on the niter blue components. The grips are also very fine, with some light dings. Mechanically excellent.
