The DWM 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. It is fitted with a ramped blade front and 300-meter sliding notch rear sights, with the "DWM" monogram on the toggle. No import markings (either the classic "GERMANY" or the later style name and address) or non-German proofs are visible. Fitted with a matching numbered, checkered, Schnabel tip forearm with integral booster spring, a pair of checkered grips, and a nickel finished magazine with unmarked wood base. Includes a modern production shoulder stock with matching checkering and attaching iron numbered to the gun as well as a leather wrapped Huey custom case fitted for the carbine and stock.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 98% plus of the professionally restored blue finish and 90% plus of the restrawed colors with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina. The forearm is very good with a few scattered minor dings and light handling marks, while the grips and stock are fine with minimal handling evidence. Mechanically excellent. The case is very fine with tape residue on lid exterior.
