Standard configuration 1923 Commercial Luger with 3 5/8” barrel having drift adjustable front sight and fixed rear sight. No chamber marking. Intertwined DWM on middle toggle link. Crown/N proofing on barrel, left side of receiver and left side of middle toggle link. Full serial number under barrel and forward frame with last two digits repeated on all of the usual small parts. Front of frame marked “GERMANY” as applied to pistols for export. Major and many minor parts are rust blued with strawed takedown lever, trigger, magazine release, safety and ejector. Fire blued toggle pins and grip screws. Correct tinned magazine with an unmarked wood plug. Attached to Benke Thiemann stock whose left side is marked “PATENT BENKE/THIEMANN D.R.P.u. A.P.” The right side of stock is marked with serial number 16, making it one of the first of fewer than 300 stocks produced.
Super scarce and charismatic DWM 1923 Commercial with Benke Thiemann Shoulder stock.
Pistol with approximately 99% bright original rust blue with minimal sharp edge wear. Front and backstrap in the same extraordinary condition that equally applies to the small parts, though the trigger and magazine release button have had their straw freshened. Near excellent original magazine. Bright bore with sharp rifling and perfect manual mechanics. Lightly refinished, blued Benke Thiemann stock, crisply marked, showing minimal wear. Stock secures tightly to pistol. When folded, the magazine button can not be fully depressed to allow the release of the magazine; when extended, the stock locks open with no wobble. Fantastic looking ensemble that should impress and please any firearms collector, regardless of their area of interest. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
