Thought I would share my one and only P-08 with you. I wasnt sure where to put it as I dont know if its ww1 or ww2 and its not in such bad condition that I felt it should go under battlefield archaeology.
Anyway. I dont know the story behind this luger but at some point it has been welded shut. the only part that works is the safety catch. It also looks to have deteriorated at some point (look at the trigger) and has had the grips replaced. The only markings I can see are DWM and 28. The mystery of this pistol for me is that on the trigger guard I can just make out the marking GERMANY, which would suggest that it was made for export, however the words on the safety catch are still written in German, why would an export pistol retain its German words?
I got this from a guy who had had it a long time and collected battlefield relics, so I kind of assume some sort of military connection, although the export marking would contradict that.
Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated.
