This is a rare, very desirable and all matching Model 1900 American Eagle Luger in 7.65 mm manufactured by Deutsche Waffen-Und Munitionsfabriken (“DWM”). Only about 8,000 of the Model 1900 American Eagle Luger were manufactured in 7.65 mm caliber. These Lugers were manufactured especially for the US market beginning in 1900 and this particular Luger, serial number 18418, was manufactured towards the end of production as the serial number range for the Model 1900 is 2,000 to 20,000.

The Barrel on this Luger is its original 4 3/4-inch long (120 mm) barrel and it retains 95% blued finish. There is slight wear near the muzzle. The bore still has a mirror finish with strong rifling with frosting in the grooves. The original front sight is present and is correctly staked to the front sight base. The bottom rear of the barrel has the full matching serial number “18418.” The bottom, rear of the barrel has a witness line that aligns perfectly with the corresponding witness line on the bottom, front of the frame.

The Receiver has the matching partial serial number “418” on the bottom of the lug. There are several other stamps on the bottom of the receiver including an “0,” “7” and an “M” stamp. The Receiver retains 95% of its original blued finish with wear on the sharp edges. The Sear Bar retains 90% of its original blued finish with wear on the center knuckle and at the front where it meets the Trigger Lever. The Sear Bar Spring retains 60% of its beautiful and vibrant fire blued finish. Over the chamber is the crisp American Eagle stamp. The face of the chamber is very clean and remains in the white. The Ejector retains a faded straw finish and the spring is still very strong. All of the interior portions of the receiver remain correctly in the white.

The Rear Toggle Link has the matching partial serial number “418” stamped on the rear slope and retains 95% of its original blued finish. This Luger has the correct and early dished toggle knobs and early-type toggle lock mechanism. The Toggle Lock retains considerable original straw finish. The Toggle Lock was incorporated in the early Model Lugers to prevent the knee of the toggle from bending prematurely. When the weapon is locked, the “L” shaped toggle lock engages the catch in the right side of the frame, which acts as a sort of delayed blowback mechanism. After firing, the receiver and toggle assembly recoil as a unit to the point where the toggle lock disengages the frame catch so the toggle assembly is then free to bend.

The Coupling Link moves freely and is still in the white. The Breech Block has the matching partial serial number “418” on the left side and it retains 95% of its blued finish with wear noted on the side rails. The face of the Breech Block is clean. The Breech Block Pin still retains considerable original fire blued finish. The Front Toggle Link has the script "DWM" stamp on the top and matching partial serial number “418” stamped on the underside and it retains 95% of its blued finish.

The Extractor exhibits a faded straw finish. The Firing Pin Spring Retainer is very clean and remains in the white as does the Firing Pin Spring. The Firing Pin itself remains in the white. The Rear Toggle Pin exhibits remnants of the original fire blued finish and fits flush on both sides.

The Side Plate is serial number matching with “418” stamped on the bottom rail and it retains 90% of its blued finish with wear noted on the sharp edges. The Trigger/Sear Lever Arm is correctly in the white as is the Lever Arm pin.

The Frame itself has the full matching serial number “18418” over the word “GERMANY” on the nose and retains 95% of its blued finish. All American Eagle Lugers have the “GERMANY” stamp on the frame indicating the place of manufacture. The Lanyard Ring is fully secured at the rear. The internal surfaces of the Frame are correctly polished in the white. The Front Grip Strap retains 80% of its blued finish with browning on the edge where the Grip Panels meet the Frame. The Back Strap retains 80% of its bluing with edge browning.

The Magazine Well is polished on both front and rear. The old style Recoil Spring retains considerable original blue finish. The left side of the frame has the correct flat grip safety lever spring. The original Grip Safety retains 85% of its original blued finish and it has the matching partial serial number “418” stamped on the left flat with the top, exposed portion of the grip safety remaining in the white.

The Magazine Catch retains considerable original and strong straw finish and operates smoothly. The Magazine Catch's external band spring retains most of its original fire blued finish. The Takedown Lever retains considerable original faded straw finish.

The Trigger is serial number matching with “18” stamped on the top left side and it retains the majority of its faded straw finish with browning in the back, milled out section. The Trigger Spring remains in the white. The Hold Open Latch and integrated spring is correctly unnumbered and it retains considerable original blued finish on the bottom with the top surface correctly in the white. The Safety Lever retains considerable original faded straw finish. That portion of the frame that is covered by the safety lever when it is in the down position is correctly polished to the white.

Both Grip Panels are in excellent condition. Both Panels have their original finish and have minor flattening in small sections on the front and towards the bottom. The back of both panels are correctly serial number matching with “18” stamped on each. Both Grip Panel screws retain considerable original blued finish with both having unmarred slots. Both Panels fit securely to the Frame.

The Magazine is the original nickel-plated, wrap-around body type with the original wood base that functions perfectly. Model 1900 American Eagle Luger magazines were not serial numbered. The Follower and Follower Spring are still strong and it fits securely in the magazine well of the Luger and releases smoothly. This is a very rare and fine condition Model 1900 American Eagle Luger in 7.65mm caliber that functions perfectly.
