    Is it impossible for an LP08 to have been in the Navy?

    No,
    not impossible. There are many legitimate ones around. they are covered in Jan Still's Weimar luger book. They just are not marked the way as the one in the OP.

    Here are the markings on the back strap of mine.P1170391.jpg

    Not only are the two grip strap markings bogus, the stock is made of pine and a complete fake.

    Thanks again for the opinions. I've only seen it through the pics. The wood on the board stock looked "funny" and the holster looked more modern. Now to pass on the bad news...

    Good luck;
    you likely will receve a cool and maybe even hostile reception to your info.
    Be ready to duck. JMHO.

    The really "bad" part is someone screwed a decent looking Artillery.

    There is a reason for that!

    ( As Keoki points out, the reason is the marking is fake, and should not be in that location.)

    Dow is quite on point about the marking being on the stock lug. All I have seen are well above the stock lug.

    Absolutely, the"reason" it is in the wrong place is that the marking is fake!
