DWM Luger question
Hi guys, I hope you can help. I have a DWM Luger 30 caliber, serial # 6693 not date stamped, also has rust pits on side plate, front sights and under the grips.
I have repaired and reblued the gun. My question is how much do you think it is worth? And would anyone have any idea as to the model year?
Finally, can anyone tell me where I can purchase new or second hand parts? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
...By .30 cal. I assume ya mean 7.65mm...I myself have seen a few DWM Lugers manufactured from around 1906 to 1923. I do know of a 1915 DWM that sold for $450 but it was a Brazilian contract gun...Lord knows what they're worth now...As for parts I can't help ya...I'd love one myself...:mrgreen:
a lot less now than it was before you did this

...Uh Oh...I missed that part about "...repaired and reblued the gun"...Don't wanna do that if yer thinkin' collector value...:smt021
They have parts.
As to value, a re-blued and repaired pistol probably has little actual collector's value, but for insurance purposes, you might consider using values from the Blue Book of Gun Values as NIADHF suggests.
Good luck with it and enjoy.
