KRAUSEWERK 1906 LUGER SERIAL # 4, ACCESSORIES, CASE.
Cal. 45 ACP
This is a phenomenal reproduction of the .45 ACP Luger as submitted to the 1906 U.S. Military trials, when trying to secure a military contract. Reportedly, 2 pistols were assembled, only 1 remaining. This reproduction painstakingly dimensioned from the original pistol. One of fewer than 30 that that Krausewerk completed. This example was one of the first, w/ a full compliment of accessories, including 3 additional mags beyond the cased spare. The pistol itself has a 4.75″ bbl. w/ drift adjustable front sight & standard Luger V notch rear sight. Top of toggle is blank except for the intertwined “GL” (Georg Luger) behind rear sight, applied to the guns that were made under his direct supervision. S# “4” is on forward frame & on the bottom of the bbl. extension. There are no other markings on the gun the number “4” being repeated on the spine of the mag. Major components rust blued. Sm. parts strawed of fire blued. Fitted w/ walnut checkered grips. Spare mag. in case is unmarked.
MAGS: 3 mags total.
UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: Other accessories in the special ordered Huey-type hard carrying / presentation case include a pin punch, takedown tool, marked w/ Mauser banner & an oiler / cleaning rod w/ brass shaft. Case covered w/ black pebbled leather, nickeled latched & corners, French fitted interior lined w/ green baize. Additionally included are 3 spare Krausewerk mags, 1 unmarked, the other 2 marked “2” on spine.
