This is a matching Imperial stamped Erfurt Luger. Manufactured in 1916 it has the Wilhelm crown as well as 1861, the serial number. Note the wooden buttons on the magazine, a characteristic of WW1 Lugers.

Those are fun to shoot. Much more of a collector’s piece than anythiing else now.
Yeah you are right, they are a little over engineered compared to modern automatics. Plus I’d hate to be responsible for blowing this up because of an unseen fault and modern loads.
