1917 DWM Artillery Rig (Archives)

This is a 1914 Model, chamber dated 1917 DWM 8" model with the 800 meter adjustable rear sight mounted on the barrel. The 1917 Chamber Date with the fixed front sight is one of the modifications of the Artillery model since it was produced in 1914. It was found that this adjustment wasn't necessary with the adjustments of the leaf sight.   This all-matching gun and rig shows up in this condition once ever 40 years.       (1106)

The original intent was to issue the 8" weapon to gun boat crews but it then became standard issue to machine gun crews and artillery units. The frame has the stock lug and the thumb safety. The thumb safety is marked "Gesichert" and extractor "Geladen".  The barrel is numbered and proofed to the weapon. The inside of the gun is clean and well cared for.

This is a 9mm weapon with all the matching parts marked in the military manner (exposed). The barrel is 200mm and it has the adjustable leaf site.

 

 

Acknowledging a requirement to protect the crew served weapons the German army was in search of a shorter, more lightweight weapon than the K98.  The Luger Carbine was well known (the Kaiser hunted with one), so the idea for a long barreled pistol with a stock was an easy jump to make.

 

 

Sometimes in examination people think the leaf site is bent.  However, when raising the site to the full 800 meter position reveals a 7 left movement.  This design compensates for the rifling on the 200 mm barrel which gives the bullet a twist in flight and if properly adjusted will permit a corrected point of impact.  Another example of Luger engineering. The Imperial proofs are well struck and tell the story of the gun.  The barrel inside is shiny with distinctive lands and grooves.  The magazine is clean and grips match the gun.

Included in this offering is the all matching Artillery Luger, the matching stock, two matching magazines in the dual pouch, a cleaning rod and a proofed loading tool. This is a complete rig with unit markings on the magazine pouch.
