Description:

This is a unique example of a long barrel DWM Model 1920 Commercial Luger semi-auto pistol that was assembled by the Germans in the years following World War I. Blade front, notch rear and tangent mid sights, with a blank chamber, "crown/N" marked receiver and breechblock, and "DWM" marked front toggle link. The long barrel is unmarked save for the witness mark on the underside; two such marks are present on the underside of the receiver. The grips and magazine base are unnumbered, with the other components numbered in the "commercial" pattern. Provenance: The Art Buchanan Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent as refinished, with 95% of the original blue, 80% of the original straw colors showing some areas of brown patina, scattered spotting, bright edge wear and light handling marks overall, with some light pitting on the right side of the frame. The grips are excellent, with some light dings on the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
