This is an almost completely matching, 1915 Dated, DWM (Deutsche Waffen und Munitions Fabriken) WWI Imperial Luger. Only the magazines are non-matching. It is chambered for 9mm and has a standard 4" (100mm) barrel, fixed sights and walnut grips. The serial number appears on the front of the frame, on the left side of the receiver, on the side plate sear and trigger. The 1914 Model Luger is characterized by the short frame, the rear "V" cut fixed and front dovetailed sight, and the frame with the stock lug. It was produced from 1914 until 1918 for the German Military.
The right side of the receiver displays all the Imperial Army acceptance stamps. Original grips are finely cut diamond shaped checkering made from walnut or in some cases beech wood. These grips are serial numbered to the gun. The inside of the gun is clean and well cared for. The exterior shows honest wear on the muzzle, barrel and high points on the sides. The barrel is shiny and shows distinct lands and grooves. This Luger shows characteristic holster wear on the side plate and front exposed edges of the rails and end of the barrel. I would rate it about 80% original finish.
The Luger is accompanied by three magazines and a WWII issue holster with German military markings. With the magazines and about a $250 holster, this gun is priced reasonably.
