This is an excellent example of a 06/34 "Mauser Banner" Swiss contract Luger pistol. These were manufactured by Mauser as a commercial contract for Switzerland. This example has the short style barrel extension with the 1906 frame with coil spring and grip safety, fast taper barrel, first pattern polished lower safety area and no stock lug. It is estimated that 500 were manufactured in the 3500v-4000v serial number range for both the Swiss Government, as well as other foreign countries. They can be found with and without a crest over the chamber area; this example was manufactured without the Swiss crest. It has the standard "Mauser Banner" on the front toggle, with the early style "Crown/U" commercial proofmark. The full serial number (3637/v) is located on the front of the frame with serial number (3637) on the left side of the barrel extension and underside of the barrel, with the last two digits of the serial number (37) stamped on the various other parts. This scarce Swiss contract Luger is complete with one matching magazine that has the all blue magazine body with an aluminum base marked "3637/v". This Luger is complete with an original front sight/muzzle cover. The front of the cover is marked "H. LUTHY/ARMES/NEUCHATEL".
