Price: $2,699.00 | Product Code: Artillery Luger | Availability: In Stock
This is an extremely rare Erfurt Arsenal-made Long P.08 Luger, commonly referred to by collectors as the the Artillery Luger. 1914 was the only year that Erfurt ever made the Long, Artillery-style Luger and they are quite scarce. DWM manufactured 151,000 of this model, but Erfurt only built 23,000 of them. Many of these did not survive the war.
The pistol is all matching and all the small parts are Erfurt inspection marked as well. This gun is in about 98% restored condition. The pistol is all-matching, except for the correct style magazine. The bore is excellent. It is very difficult to find a Luger from the first year of the war this nice and HALF the price of an un-restored example.. These Lugers were often employed in the role that the submachine gun filled in WW2: to provide a high volume of short range firepower.
