Description:

Originally manufactured in 1918 as a military-issue Luger, this pistol was subjected to a post-war overhaul, that included the installation of a sear safety; it has not been cut for a magazine well safety. Marked "1918" on the chamber and "DWM" on the toggle. The extension has three "crown/gothic letter" proofs and an Imperial firing proof, which is also repeated on the barrel and breechblock. External numbers match. Both magazines are nickel finished with alloy bases, one marked "6555/1" and the other "6555/2" (suffixes absent from both). Also included with the lot is a black leather flap holster marked "ROBERT LARSEN/BERLIN/1933" and a takedown tool. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 85% of the arsenal refurbished blue finish, showing the start of a brown patina on the gripstraps, edge wear, and mild handling marks. Some of the components are arsenal restamped to match, and the straw components show a dull or dark tone. The grips are fine, with some dings and flat spots, and the holster is very good with some scuffs and scratches overall and a few areas of broken stitching. Mechanically excellent.
