11/3/21 - This is a very rare and original example of a Swiss 1906/20 DWM Luger that was exported to Abercrombie & Fitch in New York. Chiefly manufactured in Germany, a small number of Luger pistols are known to have been routed through Switzerland, where they could be fitted with barrels that exceeded the lengths permitted by the Treaty of Versailles prior to further export to Abercrombie & Fitch Co. of New York, then the largest outfitting and sporting goods firm in the country. The barrels were manufactured by Hammerli, who marked the barrels "ABERCROMBIE & FITCH Co NEW YORK/MADE IN SWITZERLAND" on top, and used a distinctive sight configuration where the sight base is visibly set back from the muzzle crown. Fixed sights, with the aforementioned barrel marking, Swiss "Cross in starburst" on the chamber, and a "DWM" toggle. Serializing on the barrel is also uniquely perpendicular to the frame. This one has about 97% of the original blue, just minor high edge wear on sideplate. Also some oxidation there and on the grip straps. Grips have notable smoothing but no chips or cracks. Proper Swiss commercial mag. Bore has some frost and smoothing throughout.
