OK...
I recently got kind of interested in early Lugers, and have been actively 'pursuing' a few.
What I really needed was a good shooter, and sure enough...one turned up.
It's nickeled (makes it a 'shooter' automatically ), and mechanically it's A-1.
M-1914 Erfurt, dated 1918. 9MM, 4" barrel.
Absolutely the worst/hardest gun to photograph I've ever owned!
Did the best photo I could get outside, for two reasons:
1) The nickel looked more 'real', and
2) I wanted dant to see my newly-stained deck! :lol:

OK, Carl...I took it to the range today.
All said, it's quite accurate.
Makes a lot of noise and has more kick than I imagined.
Tiny rear sight...a real trench gun, IMHO!
I guess moving all that toggled 'mass' requires lots of motion.
The magazine spring makes loading it a real musche-builder.
Forgot and left my Luger 'loading tool' at home.
Man, are my thumbs strong now! :lol:

I don't know, I think it's kinda cool.. and sorta like the look in nickle.
I think one of these days I'm going to have to start looking for one for myself.....
Oh , and the deck color looks great too......lol

My very first pistol bought in 1970 was a Stoeger 22 Luger. I always was a bit odd. I didn't keep it and about a year ago I saw this one at a local show and flooded with nostalgia I bought it for $210.




My mother gave me a 1918 DWM as 21st BD present. It was stolen and I found one almost identical to the first save the police modification and Wolfsberg PD marking. They are great fun to shoot.
