1911 Erfurt Luger question.
I have one which is real, real nice. No rust, no pitting, some straw colored parts, original grips and clip which is original to the gun, wooden bottom, but marked with a different serial number. All parts have the last two digits of the guns serial number on them.
My question is this.....The rear back strap does not have a fitting for the stock attachment but the front of the strap has the numbers and letters 4.(small case) F.(large case) 3.(large case) and 1.(small case) stamped on it. During my research on the gun I am led to believe that these numbers represent the unit in the German army, WW1 or earlier I guess, to whom the gun was issued.
Any insight into this? Thanks.
