Need help Unit ID on Artillery Luger:

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Posted this down in the firearms section... lots of looks but no replies. Hoping perhaps someone in this section might be able to help. Would like help re: a unit ID and any info on same, if possible re: the unit marking on one of my artillery Lugers.

Many thanks in advance for any info.

God bless,

Thanks Richie. Was hoping someone would jump in. I'm not familiar with many individual German units from WW1 so need any help I can get on this one. So far it's the only firearm I have which is specifically unit marked. So would love to learn all I can about it's history and the history of the unit to which it belonged.

God bless,

Dan

Nearly forgot... have another but it's on a M88 Commission rifle. There were other markings on another of the barrel bands but I don't have pics and they're all X'd out anyway.
