    The E/Gw3 is Gustrow, couldn't bear to read through that thread to see if they got there (from the Gewehr Factory 3 at Mauser idea). They did a lot of reworking in the Weimar era (an Army depot). I don't see a Gw3 on this one but it wouldn't dissuade me either way, all of the Lugers the SS got probably came from Army surplus.

    That is the problem. Want more? A lot of the "Lazy S" stamps look different on the Gew conversions.

    I agree, ask a Luger specialist.

    There are known legitimate deathshead Lugers. However the current thought is that they are associated with the freikorps or some other interwar organization, NOT the SS. The ones I’ve seen that I believed were legitimate had crown N proofing added.

    So, Lugers that seem to have non-military commercial proofing, using Death head proofs with the lazy S, which match SS Gew conversions exactly (which have both traits) are not considered to be from the same organization? But instead think they are from direct postwar type organizations? No wonder I donít collect Lugers. Maybe I should buy a few before they figure it out. Except it seems they are priced like they already know. Confusing. Kinda like the KŁ Lugers.

    I don't see any commercial proofing whatsoever...
