DWM BULGARIAN CONTRACT Model 1908 9x19mm LUGER PISTOL C&R RARE
WORLD WAR I & II Military Pistol w/BULGARIAN CREST
Here we present a C&R DWM Bulgarian Contract Model 1908 Pistol manufactured circa 1908-1910 by DWM (Deutsche Waffen-und Munitionsfabriken) in Berlin, Germany. This is a scarce example of approximately 10,000 Luger pistols ordered by Bulgaria in the 1908 to 1910 timeframe. These were delivered in two different serial number blocks, and I believe this one falls into the first block. Although these were produced in fairly large numbers, they are an extremely difficult example to obtain in any condition as they saw heavy use in both World War I and World War II with most having been rebuilt at least once by the DWM factory and then again by the Russians after World War II when several thousand were captured on the Eastern Front.
The chamber area is roll marked with the DWM scroll monogram with the Bulgarian Crest on top of the front toggle. This crest consists of the Bulgarian Crown over a shield with a Bulgarian Rampant Lion inside. The lower safety lever area of the frame is marked in Cyrillic lettering “LOADED” and “FIRE”. This is a good opportunity to own a very rare variant of an early 20th century Luger.
Like nearly all examples of these, this one shows signs of heavy use and wear. The action is excellent. The bore’s rifling is nearly smooth, no pitting. The grips show wear commensurate with the rest of the gun. The numbers match throughout on metal parts, no discernible numbers on the inside of the grips, none on the magazine base. A rare Luger pistol for your collection!
