Persian Model 1314 Luger and Artillery Luger

These are Lots 3402 (Artillery lP08) and 3448 (standard P08) in the upcoming RIA December 2019 Premier auction.

In 1934 (just year before officially requesting that the Western world call his country “Iran” rather than “Persia”), the Shah of Iran ordered 4,000 Luger pistols form the Mauser company. These were to be divided between 3,000 standard P08 models and 1,000 LP08 artillery models (plus a handful of cutaways, interestingly). The guns were delivered in 1935 and 1936, and are unique for having all of their markings printed in Farsi, including the serial numbers, model designation, safety, and even Mauser’s name.
