    Default 1918 Erfurt Artillery ?

    Did Erfurt ever produce any Artillery Lugers in 1918?
    Was 1914 the only year they made artillery models?

    Wellcome to the forum, Erfurt mate the Artillery 1914 though 1918 according to the info I have, if it is wrong I am sure we will hear a rebuttal.

    Peter is wrong as Erfurt only made Artillery Lugers in 1914. Curt

    Kurt... thank you for the correction I looked at Lugers ad Random page 173 shows a picture of a 1914 Erfurt Artillery and also states manufactured 1914 through 1918 above chamber. This is the only experience I have with Erfurt Artilleries so I really was expecting a rebuttal.

    Correct, Erfurt L P08 made only in 1914; but after 1916 nearly all Erfurt receivers had the flat for the artillery rear sight, this sometimes leads to confusion. DWM made the L P08 from 1914 through 1918.

    Well...this seller thinks a 1918 Erfurt LP08 is worth selling.

    Calls it a restoration...but it is an "assemblage" as well.

    And am pretty sure Erfurt never applied their inspection stamp on the side plate at that location...

    It was not a "bargain" at $2k , but a nicely restored artillery, though not original by any stretch.
    I think the finish and markings look like Lugerman's work; that kind of work probably cost someone near $500.

    I'd have been tempted at $1000, if I didn't already have a reblued shooter 1914 Erfurt art'y.

    Did DWM even make adjustable rear sights in 1918? I thought they were discontinued mid-1917. Never heard of lP-08 made by Erfurt marked 1918.
