    Default 1914 Erfurt Artillery Luger Markings

    hello

    I have already posted this thread but I don' think in the right forum , I'll do it again here .

    I just bought a 1914 Erfurt Artillery Luger with the following markings on the front side of the hand-grip frame 13 JAG 2.PF.B .129 . Could it come from the Royal Saxon 2th jäger Btn N°13 ?

    What about the rest ?

    Any help welcome . Thanks

    Check carefully what you indicate as a 2 between the G and the P. I suspect it could be a z. Better yet show us a good sharp photo of the marking.

    Thanks for the tip , I'll do that as soon as I have time to go back to my gunsmith (it is stil there until I have all the legal papers ) . What would it mean with a Z ?

    Do you think these troops could be equiped with this type of pistol ? And what about PF.B .129 ?

    I have seen only one LP08 marked to a cavalry unit and that was a later year. If it is JzP it would probably have been unit marked later in the war. As to deciphering the entire marking, it is necessary to actually see a good photo of the marking.

    So It would be a horse-mounted Jäger regiment ... what about the 13 the 8 and the 129 ? I will probably have time tomorrow to make more detailed pictures .Thanks for the help .

    I would really need to see a good photo of the marking.
