Product Information

A First World War DWM (Deutsche Waffen-und Munitionsfabriken) Artillery Luger dated 1917 and with matching numbers. The serial number 4587 doesn't have a letter suffix, meaning this is from the very first batch of 1917, and is around number four thousand, five hundred and eighty seventh from that years production. The pistol grip is regimentally marked "J.R.154 10.K.8" Infantry Regiment 154, 10th Kompany, weapon number 8. The 154th regiment were involved in many large scale engagements throughout all of WWI and suffered huge losses. The regiment was part of the 9th Infantry, division of the 5th Army Corps and saw action in Cotes De Meuse in 1914, Les Eprges in 1915, Verdun in 1916, Cotes De Meuse in 1917 and in 1918  Battle of Picardy, an attack on Ayencourt-Royancourt, to name a few. The 9th was a 1st Class Division within the German army and for this reason were often over stretched and heavily utilized, and eventually collapsed near the end of the war.

In the aftermath of WWI the Allied Commission created the Treaty of Versailles banning Germany from having weapons longer then 100mm. This meant all Artillery Lugers had to have shorter barrels fitted. Thankfully this one still has its original one. Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked and dry fired.
