8/2/18 - This is a scarce DWM Artillery Luger (LP.08) from 1915. It is all matching numbers, including the grips but not the magazine, which is period original but numbered to a different Luger. The finish on the pistol rates at about 94% with basic high edge wear on muzzle and sideplate, a spot of loss on the back strap and another on the bottom of the front strap. Halos are present under the barrel, supporting the originality of the finish. Faint amounts of original straw are still present on the small parts. Bore shows some use but is fairly shiny with strong rifling overall.
