Owned several WWI handguns over the years . This was my first that I acquired 1980 and it's also my last . Has some sentimental attachment .
Please support Crimson Trace Grips , Mossberg and Beretta . They support our troops .
Here for your viewing pleasure is Austro-Hungarian Contract C-96 all-matching serial number 365583 with Austro-Hungarian 1916 acceptance mark and Austrian Army 1930 acceptance mark. This was one of 14,378 delivered per this contract. Also shown is apparent unit designator R 2 4.
And of course there is this. From my own Country contribution to the "slaughter".
A .32 Savage 1907, adopted as our M915 service pistol. when we wanted to buy more pistols because it was decided to issue sidearms to more ranks. The purveyor of our service pistol at the time(Luger of the 1906 pattern in 7,65 Parabellum) was otherwise to busy for foreign weapons contracts.
Like the ones From the French Contract it has a lanyard ring and a loaded chamber indicator.

I had to have a WWI P.08 of course.
Being a "die hard" "Luger" shooter.
Edit. Almost forgot. It's a DWM from 1915.
Edit 2. For anyone wondering. It's 4293 no suffix(somewhere in April/May 1915).

I'm not near as knowledgeable about guns from the WWI era as some of you guys. I do have a couple from that time period though, a 1914 Colt Pocket Hammer and 1918 Webley MK VI.
