This DWM pistol was an extraordinarily close copy of the FN 1910. So close that FN threatened DWM with a patent infringment lawsuit, which of course prompted DWM to cease and desist. As per the FN 1910, this is a blow back pistol with a fixed front sight and notched rear sight. Left side of slide is marked with the intertwined DWM as familiar to every Luger collector. Crown/N proof in usual locations. Serial number “75” marked under the slide, under frame, and on the barrel. Uniformily checkered walnut grips secured with a single transverse screw. Bottom magazine release. Magazine with 6 indicator holes on each side and fixed floorplate. All components except the barrel are rust blued, barrel is in the white.
Attractive DWM 1923 (sometimes referenced as 1922) pocket pistol, super early production, serial number 75, in near excellent condition.
Near excellent original finish, with the pistol showing sharp edge wear and minor scratches as consistent with a gun that has been lightly carried. Comparable condition grips, darked, with blunted checkering. Magazine with insertional. wear and patch of bluing loss on floorplate as pictured. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics.
