    It is a 1902 Model Deutsches Waffen Und Munitionsfabriken Luger carbine. The value is $7,000-$25,000 based on condition, accessories included and matching numbers.

    I don’t have a clue as to the make of this gun nor its value which is exactly the reason I need a copy of the 2012 Standard Catalog of Firearms. Also, I will not steal the information from those who have researched and posted their replies before me.

  5. Rascal

    I believe it is a model 1902 Luger Carbine without the buttstock attached. The Erma model ET22 “Navy Model” appears to have been copied from this model.
    Value is about $17,000.

  6. Pistolero45ACP

    Per my 2nd edition of the Standard Catalog of Military Firearms, page 98, This is a 1920 Navy Luger Carbine, Assembled from surplus Navy parts with the distinctive two position, sliding navy sight on the rear toggle link.
    Make therefore is unknown. Value: Exc. $6,250

    I would like to win a copy of the all-new 2012 Standard Catalog of Firearms.

    DWM Model 1902 Luger Semi Automatic Carbine in .30 Cal minus the traditional stock estimated value (small picutre so hard to tell…$32,000 USD.

    luger carbine. From the checkering pattern, an earlier version — perhaps 1902. Can’t really give a value figure without knowing condition and whether or not it comes with the stock and matching case. For just the gun in good condition I’d say $15K. For a complete one with the case and stock could be $30K+
