Back before World War One, when Abercrombie & Fitch was still a true sporting goods company catering to the likes of Joseph Steinbeck and Theodore Roosevelt, they decided to offer Luger pistols for sale. This was simple enough, with guns ordered from DWM in Germany. It became harder after the war, however, when the Versailles Treaty strictly limited German arms production. So Abercrombie found a workaround by ordering 100 pistols through Hämmerli-Walther in Switzerland, who bought incomplete guns and installed their own barrels and did their own finishing. These guns (50 in .30 Luger and 50 in 9x19mm) arrived with the barrels marked with A&F’s name, and they are a particularly desirable variation of Luger for collectors.

So, today Brad Simpson from Simpson Ltd is going to walk us through how to authenticate a true Abercrombie Luger. We will look at the serial number, the finish, the front sight, and the frame reinforcing on the inside.
