    Your pistol was assembled and re-numbered as you observed, quite likely by the police themselves. JMHO. ;)

    As Ed said,
    the rear marking is a Provisional or additional marking to be seen easily when the pistol is in a rack or holster.
    It is the same unit as the full marking on the front strap.

    What Dwight said, plus if one needed superficial evidence, the lack of finish on the back strap and the front of frame screams "modification/removal".

    Since this is a commercial luger, I do not believe you will find numbers on the inside of the side plate, only the last two
    digits of the serial number on the bottom of the side plate.

    No, there were no long barrel Mauser lugers with those receiver markings; so the barrel is definitely a later addition (post war, maybe last week).

    I've never seen one, but it is possible of course.

    Luger kit "conversion"- no; there would be no point in it as only the sub-cal barrel would be remotely adaptable.

    Yes, you kind of stated that as a question- but seems it got ignored.

    Stated yet another way:
    If 50% of 1914s had unit marks, that is only 10,000 or so; 10,000 is only about 10% of the 1917...

    The answer may be as simple as there were many more 1917 LP08s made than the other years; like 4 or 5 times as many !

    The barrel appears to be "tight", what kikeformad shows is a "short" frame and a shadow.
    Frame length reduced and probably re-numbered to match.
