    Default DWM Luger manufacture date

    I just bought this luger today for 800 dollars. I Have never had one before and I know there are lot of variables in pricing these so I took a chance. First I was wondering how to tell the dates on these second I was wondering if I got a good deal. All the numbers match. Thank you so much for your help.

    Based on some minimal research it appears your luger was made between 1906 and 1914. Here is the direct info from the website. The info is based on the marking above the serial number. "German commercial proof. Found on some commercial Lugers of the 1906-1914 era. A few Lugers manufactured by Krieghoff have a similar, but small proof."

    You're gun appears, to my untrained eye, to be in good condition. I am not the best person to ask about price, as I am not very up to date on what they are going for and am not very knowledgable about the different variations. Did you get a holster and extra magazines, or just the gun?

    I did not get a holster but did get 1 extra magazine

    I know that matching guns are worth a lot more, as I'm sure you know. Is the gun matching or mismatched?

    I think you did fine for $800 but again, I am no expert on lugers so best to wait for more experienced opinions.

    Bill will know what he's talking about, so best to answer his question as he will know much more than I do. Here is what Bill asked.
