Mauser Banner / Military mix
« on: May 05, 2013, 09:13:32 AM »
This is a 1941 Mauser P08 which received a, correctly numbered, Mauser Banner toggle rather than the normal military toggle.
Shown together with a wartime, uncoded(!), DWM ammunition box. Both show that there were commercial variations on the military theme available during the war.

Commercial made/marked variants of military small arms of almost all variety were more or less common durring the war. 
Some were made through out the war and some were discontinued by mid war. 
While maby not common the Mauser Banner Lugers are not real hard to find. 
Some are rather rare such as the K98k rifles and many like the HSc, PP u. PPK pistols were very common. 
And some like the P.38 had their own catagory for commercial made, in this case the Mod P.38.

Military 9mm boxes with a commercial label are extremely rare. Commercial wartime ammunition was commercially packed in 25-round or 50-round boxes.

You are comparing apples and oranges here. This is the section that discusses Mauser lugers, so I don't understand the need to talk about Walther pistols. Moreover, the HSc was a commercial pistol to start with and it ALWAYS has a Mauser banner on the slide. So again, I fail to see the relevance of your remark there.
