    Default Luger Production Numbers by years?

    I was searching the web to find out how many Luger pistols were made in any given year and I couldn't find it.

    Does such information exist? I am not looking for exact numbers just ball park figures.

    Thank you

    Much of this info can be found in Still's books.

    Yes, I agree with Neil, this info would be in at least three books of Jan's and a couple others, such as mine

    So, you would need to look up, DWM Commercial, WW1 DWM Military, WW1 Erfurt Military, DWM Weimar military, police and commercial, Weimar Simson military and police, Nazi Mauser Military, police and commercial, Krieghoff military and commercial and lastly, Swiss (and not counting the contract lugers)

    Following is my estimate of Military Mauser Lugers prouduced 1934 thru 1942, excluding contract pistols to Portugal and Bulgaria. It should be darn close. Hope this helps!!



    1934 (K)....... 10920
    1935 (G)....... 54070
    1936.............. 92300
    1937............ 122900
    1938............ 116400
    1939............ 116350
    1940............ 136500
    1941 (42)...... 12400
    1941 (byf).... 137300
    1942............... 98000

    You weren't looking for info about pre-WW2?

    It might have been good to say you were looking for WW2 lugers years

    I guess since you posted in this forum, but I generally don't even see what forum it is in...

    Sorry Ed. You are correct I wanted to know about pre ww1 numbers as well. I just glanced at the numbers and only later I realized that some numbers were missing but still it is very useful info for me.
