  • These early Swiss commercial Lugers were originally intended for sale in Switzerland, however with the huge early demand in the US for Luger pistols in the 1907-1915 time frame, DWM diverted some production from their Swiss contract through their US agent to the Abercrombie & Fitch Co. of New York. At this time, Abercrombie & Fitch Co. in New York was probably the largest retailer of outdoor sporting goods and equipment in the US.
  • This scarce Luger has the early style short frame with the 1906 style grip safety, no stock lug and is correctly marked GELADEN on the extractor
  • We have seen pistols of this quality selling upwards of $20,000 +
