NO RESERVE!! Here's an interesting pistol! This P.08 Luger was manufactured by Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) in the 1920's for the Reichsbahn Direktion and issued to police forces tasked with protecting the National Railway System. The front strap markings indicate that this pistol was issued to forces stationed in the city of Magdeburg. Germany was in a state of near chaos during the time when this pistol was issued. There were massive riots due to the poor economy and hyper-inflation of the time and the mail/railway cars were a prime target of looters and vandals. Since the regular police were already overwhelmed, special forces were established to maintain the security of the rail system. This pistol was issued to the police troopers assigned to this duty in Magdeburg, one of the most important rail hubs in Germany.
Like the few others known, this pistol is chambered for the 7,65mm Parabellum (.30 Luger). It carries the "alpha" style serial numbering combined with commercial style number placement. The proofs indicate commercial production...there are no military proofs...as this was a new production pistol made in the 1920's, not a reworked surplus WWI pistol. The parts are matching or unnumbered. There are no import markings. The original blue finish is in excellent shape and rates 95% overall with normal wear at some of the high spots. Strong straw colors remain on the small parts. The grips are in excellent shape, free of cracks, chips or repairs. The mechanics are in good working order and the bore is mirror bright with sharp rifling. Comes with a WWII era military magazine (the pistol was very likely captured during WWII). This is an unusual pistol and a great item for the history buff or Luger collector.
