Bought this one a few years ago; it's in .30 Luger.
Appears to be in great shape (always been) but - what do I really have? Never knew. I just wanted a Luger.

That is commonly called an Alphabet Luger. They were export models and many were reworked former military guns. Yours is odd in that the proofs look like Erfurt and the toggle is of course DWM. They were all rebuilt with .30 Luger barrels as 9mm was verboten in Germany for civilian use.
