A long time ago in a faraway place called the United States gun collectors with antique weapons that had shoulder stocks attached trembled in fear that with the stock attached, their barrel wasn't long enough to meet the BATF minimum and fueled by other fears and distortions. They threw away their historical stock and some even ground off the stock lugs on their Lugers. BATF recognizes the detachable stock when it is paired with the historical weapon it was designed for. Carbines, artillery models, navy's from the Imperial era were guns that the detachable stocks are made for and are legal.  Check the Curios and Relics BATF publications and know the truth.


This is an original World War I stock built for the Lange Pistole or as collectors say the artillery Luger. There is 3519 stamped into the stock with no serial number on the attachment iron. This may have been applied by a unit armorer that there is no definitive record that this type of marking was employed at the factory.
The overall stock shows very minor wear and there is no damage where the leather attachments used to be. The Persian artillery models were stamped in a similar location in Farsi, so it is totally unknown with the stock was destined for or came from.

These artillery stocks were made of either walnut or spruce and have stood the test of time. Made to slide on the attachment iron on the back of the group and then lock a closing the thumb latch. Even without a front forestock. These rather simply designed stocks extended the range of the pistol and with the C 96 Broomhandle by Mauser served as a light carbine for the infantry.

This stock is offered for $800, over-the–counter.

Pictured below is a machine gun company from World War I. On most of the men you see a crossed chest strap. The darker strap is leather and goes from the left shoulder down to the right hip and this is the "artillery Luger" within the leather holster that contains the stock and the cleaning rod.The other strap represents the "bread bag" repurposed for hand grenades.

This is a very clean "artillery" stock that while unnumbered does contain the bear's name in the stock well.

Stamped very clearly in the stockwell is H T Von Oest. Southern German newspapers (Munich) mentioned this name in response to a well-known surgeon who had written in medical publications. He surely was not the only von Oest in Germany, but we do know that some of these liquors made their way to the German colony in Africa and may have been marked indigenous to that region. If only the stock could tell us where it's been?

This very unique an exceptionally clean artillery stock is offered for $850 over-the-counter. There is no buyer's premium or additional fees.

This WWI artillery stock came to us with the pieces of leather broken from years of neglect.Highlighted above is the early crown S proof found where the leather strap affixes to the board.
With the introduction of the lange Pitole 08 in 1914 to field & garrison artillerymen, airmen, and specialized units, the training manual claimed "head sized" targets could be engaged at ranges greater than 800 m with this 20 cm barrelled Parabellum. While the claim appears optimistic. The LP 08 made itself very popular when used with the stock for semi automatic oppressive fire. The original letter had dried up and begun to rot to improper storage of the holster.

One must periodically coat any of the leather products that accompany these fine historic pieces with a lanolin based leather preservative. We have found over the years that Black Rockwas the best for preserving the hundreds of holsters that we process each year.

The stock has no number stamped in the iron but it does show wear from being connected to the gun at some time. This stock is offered for $800 over the counter, plus shipping. No licensing required

This an Abercrombie & Fitch "artillery" stock that was sold by the sporting goods store in  New York. A very rare preservation of export Parabellum stock for the collector of a Abercrombie & Fitch Luger.  This stock is offered for $1850.00 to the specialized collector.  AE101
The enlargement (above) of the Abercrombie & Fitch logo is distinct and legible.  As an export of Germany the stock is stamped with the country of origin.


This is an aftermarket stock that is made to the exact dimensions of the original artillery stock and mostly of benefit for the shooter who wants to use the artillery with a shoulder stock.  This is priced at $375 over the counter plus shipping.

This is an original stock that has been removed from the leather sometime ago.  It has a serial number on the iron of #307 with a line through it and it has an early Crown S large imperial proof on the wood. On the end of the stock are the numbers 5558 in Navy style script. This stock can be cleaned up with a minimum of cleaning and waxing to be a beautiful compliment to your artillery.  This stock is offered over the counter for $800.
