Are you reffering about this photo ?


Hans

Btw: The Luger pistol was never a "Luger" in the german military history, the "Pistole 08", otherwise "Parabellum-Pistole" was the
former designation.
Probably the very best german "Faustfeuerwaffe" ever produced, fits your hand like a glove, a "legend".
To me personally the very best 9mm pistol ever.

[I've owned many wartimeP-08's and several war time P-38's, and have fird them all off over the years. I like the P-38 way better then the P-08.They seem more hefty and stout in hand.

Mark, whatever designation was used officially, "Die 08" (E: "The 08") was the common designation in both World Wars
for the Luger Pistole.

The german designation "Parabellumpistole" was less common used, even in official documents.

Parabellumpistole / Wiki(G) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parabellumpistole
