"It can't be both Swiss and DWM; pics!"

Uhm... Yes, it can.

The Swiss never intended to manufacture their own Lugers. They were perfectly content to buy all that they needed from Germany.

That arrangement worked for about 14 years, from 1900 to about 1914.

It stopped working when German arms manufacturers had to concentrate on arms for Germany for World War I, in essence cutting the Swiss off from their handgun source.

The Swiss then obtained a manufacturing license from Germany and began producing Lugers at Waffenfabrik Bern, one of the Swiss state arsenals.
