    Default 1920 dwm

    A friend showed me last week a luger he acquired at some point. Here are the details:
    1920 Receiver date, appears factory stamped and not a permission gun
    Serial no. 8082 a
    proofed right side, A r A 4
    Front grip strap unit marked S. Sch. II. 494.
    Externally it matched, with exception of the magazine
    With sear safety
    9mm

    According to Stills, Weimar Lugers, page 14, 45000 produced.

    So did this start out as a Police luger and later had the Prussian State Police markings and sear safety added? Any thoughts on the value of this in stated condition.
    Thanks, Jeff

    Probably originally issued to the Schupo of Kiel in the Schleswig administrative district, received the unit maring in about 1922 and later received sear and mag safeties in about 1934 (HWIS, p. 138).
    Best regards,
