Default DWM 1918 Luger markings

Hi all,
Was hoping someone could identify this unit marking.
A friend picked up a piece with this on grip,
4.R.I.F.W.R.2.1.
Anyone know exactly what it means?
Thanks in advance

He lives about 40 miles away and doesn't have a photo capable phone plus is at work. I'll see what I can do in the next day or so.

More than likely Weimar era markings, but I don't have a reference on them.

Probably something like 4th Regiment, Infantry.........
