Description

This particular Luger Semi-Automatic is the most numerically significant among the trio of Mauser’s “Exhibit Series” prototypes. Birthed from a 1947 Swiss Ordinance Pistol, model 06/29 with serial , it underwent Mauser’s meticulous craftsmanship to echo the eventual Parabellum 29/70’s design. This was amid 1969’s discussions with Sam Cummings of Interarms. Its storied past has been chronicled in multiple publications, including John Walter’s “Luger” on page 130.

The pistol showcases a fixed Swiss-style blade front and a rear notch sight, maintaining a sleek profile with uncheckered control knobs. It boasts distinctive markings such as the “eagle/nitro” proofs and is prominently stamped with the “Original/Mauser” insignia. Its frame proclaims its heritage: “MAUSER PARABELLUM/Cal. .30 Parabellum” on the flank, “Made In Germany” to the rear, and its unique serial number to the side. “GELADEN” adorns the extractor, with the safety mechanism marked “S”. Complementing its historical frame are Swiss-style plain border checkered walnut grips.

This piece of history includes its original box, a transparent display stand, the takedown tool, a cleaning rod, editions of “Automatic Magazine” featuring this model, and a July 1986 “Guns Magazine” issue, alongside collector’s annotations. It is a rarity to encounter a Mauser Parabellum 29/70 with such extensive documentation.
