I’ve seen this before. It’s a Luger in 45 ACP. Ahhhhhhhhhh, what a fine specimen this one is. There are less than a half dozen in the world, they were made to compete in the US military trials the year they selected the 1911 Colt. From a practicality standpoint it was an easy call. From the esoteric point of view… it was a major blunder.
Yea, but wars are not won by being esoteric. The Luger was just too complicated and way too expensive to build. Even the krauts knew that.ReplyDelete
