This Swiss Luger 1906/24, manufactured in 1927, is in very good condition with 85% original finish. All visible serial numbers are matching. Grips match serial numbers. 5/5 Bore. Bore is bright with sharp rifling. Left side of the frame has light edge wear around the forward edge. Right side of the frame has finish wear/holster wear at the forward edge of the frame. Edge wear on trigger guard. There are also patches of finish wear on the front strap and backstrap. Trigger plate has light edge wear as well as wear on the high area. Both grip screws have a brown patina. Straw finish on the trigger, takedown lever, and safety lever is worn. The right side of the receiver has light finish wear along the upper edge. The left side of the receiver has a patch that is in the white, to the left of the trigger plate. Both toggle knobs have light finish wear from handling. There is some light holster wear at the muzzle. Wood grips have light handling wear with lightly dulled checkering. Magazine has matching wood base. Leather strap is attached to the frame's lanyard loop. Includes brown Luger 1900/06 military leather holster with integrated spare mag pouch.
The rear toggle link has toggle grips that are flat without knurling, with a rear sight that has a U notch. The 06/24 Luger is normally configured with flat toggle knobs with a knurled surface and a V notch rear sight. This is an uncommon configuration for 06/24, but is annotated in Vittorio Bobba's book Parabellum on pg. 142 as a "transitional" pistol that was manufactured as a 1906/24 Luger with new parts being manufactured for the eventual 06/29 model. With exception of the rear toggle link, which has non-knurled toggle grips, the remaining components are for the 06/24 configuration. For example, the straw finished safety lever and takedown lever with knurling is correct for the 06/24 Luger, as well as the straw finished trigger, the receiver is the correct type for 06/24, and the breechblock has the Swiss cross and "WAFFENFABRIK BERN" mark, which would have been blank for the 06/29. The Luger shows no apparent signs of refurbishment and the quality of the bluing on the rear toggle link matches the rest of the Luger, which suggests that that this is as configured from factory.
C&R eligible. Very discreet import engraving.
