This is a 1902 Presentation Carbine in 7.65mm.  The Luger was presented to Colonel Carlos Sariento in 1909.  The gun is know better by the name of the South American Importer of DWM, (Deutsche Waffen und Munitions Fabriken)  Juan Canedo whose name is engraved on the barrel. (477)

This cased carbine is very rare, not just because of surviving from a South American Importer, or by being cased or even by being a presentation Luger; the real value of the gun is that is it complete. It is four fold carbine case with strap and roller fasteners on two sides.

This Parabellum is 7.65mm which was the preferred caliber for accuracy both in Europe and South America


The barrel is numbered and proofed and matches the frame. Serial number placement is in the commercial ("hidden") style. The thumb safety is buffed.  This example has all matching numbers.

The J. Canedo proof on the barrel.  DWM was mounting a major sales offensive in South American with the early 1900 and 1900 'Carbine' pistols. The frame is the old long model with a stock lug and frame extension for the fully contoured checkered forearm.

Proof marks are Crown over B/U/G.  The first toggle link is marked with the DWM monogram, and there is the no rear sight on the last toggle link.


Here we can see the adjustable sight located on the barrel in front of the chamber. It has three adjustments at 100, 200 and 300 meters. The magazines are exceptionally clean.  Commercial magazine were sold unnumbered.


The toggle assembly is the old type (dished) with the toggle lock on the right side.


Prior to WWI the DWM Luger production for the commercial market peaked.  The greatest client was the United States and then South America.  The demand was sufficient in 1902 for the publication of the Spanish language version of the instruction manual. Argentina perhaps had the greatest demand for the Luger and for the 7.65mm ammunition.


Here you can see the double placement of the serial number on the forearm. The full serial number is at the bottom of the barrel, and on the frame extension (forearm  attachment). 


The magazine has what is often confused with the US Ordance Flaming bomb proof, however, it is a DWM Proof.

The last two digits appear on the takedown lever, the trigger, the side plate, the rear toggle, under the front toggle, the breach block, the receiver, and the front stock.

The oil can is another precision instrument with a swivel top and inside mechanism to restrict the oil until squeezed.


There are some Lugers that have an inherent beauty to them. When picking the pictures to put on the web we had a hard time picking the best shots because the more you look at this magnificent gun the more you have to admire the craftsmanship it represents; so we put up all of them.

The matching iron on the stock and the beauty of the checkering is unmatched by custom guns.

Even the Forearm stock is serial numbered to the gun.  Seen here is also the spring loaded actuator

The front stock contains a spring loaded mechanism that is actuated by a lug on the barrel (seen above). This actuator assists in restoring the heavier barrel-receiver into the battery position when fired.


This is a one-of-one presentation Cased 1902 Luger Carbine with all components in excellent shape as an investment quality Luger.
