SOLD - Minty 1900 DWM Luger - Cased Set
6/1/18 - This is one of the finest examples you'll find of an early commercial DWM luger, made around 1900-1901, probably in the first year of production. Incredible, original high luster DWM blue is in 98-99% condition, rich original straw colors in 95% plus condition, with just a hint of wear on high edges and a couple of tiny handling marks that are almost impossible to see in the photographs. All matching gun, it has all the early features such as long frame, dished toggles and an early checkered safety. In fact, this is #3159 luger that left the DWM factory 117 years ago! Perfect bore and minty grips. All matching numbers. The gun comes with an original and rare retailer leather carry case and all the original accessories: an oiler, a cleaning rod/oiler combo, a total of 3 magazines and an original rare brown manual. The case is in excellent shape with some wear evident on the handle and on the external leather. The interior is all original and is partitioned to fit the gun and all of the above accessories. There is NO "germany" marking on this gun, which indicates that it was probably produced for the continental market of that era. Much scarcer than the American Eagle variation, this gun can be the centerpiece of an advanced luger collection.
