LOT 3576 Rare Bulgarian Contract DWM Model 1906 Luger Semi-Automatic Pistol - Serial
no. 1276, 7.65 mm Luger Auto cal., 4 3/4 inch round bbl., blue finish, walnut grips. Approximately 1,500 of these Model 1906 Luger pistols were ordered by Bulgaria in 1908 in their own serial number range of 1-1500. These Lugers are rarely seen
today as they saw heavy use throughout both World Wars, with many captured by the Soviets that never resurfaced. Most of these
were refinished, reworked, and/or rechambered to 9 mm during their service lives. This model has the Bulgarian Crest marked chamber area with the DWM monogram on the front toggle with Cyrillic safety and extractor markings. The full serial number is located on the front
of the receiver and the underside of the barrel with the partial serial number “76” stamped on most of the various other parts, with the grips unnumbered. It is fitted with blade and notch sights, checkered walnut grips, and a correct pattern, unmarked, nickeled magazine with a walnut base.
Per the consignor this pistol was restored by Gale Morgan. CONDITION: Very fine as professionally restored, retaining 99% blue finish and 85% straw colors. The professionally made replacement grips are also very fine with a few small minor chipped diamond
sections and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
Estimate: 4,500 - 6,500
