Description (Brief)
Officially designated the P 08, the Luger pistol's toggle-locked recoil assembly makes it one of the most disitnctive semiautomatic pistols in the world. It was designed by Gerog J. Luger and first produced by Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken, or DWM, in 1900. The 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge was developed for the Luger. This model is the Artillery Luger, developed so gunners could defend their batteries from enemy infantry. The barrel is 4 inches longer than the standard Luger and it features long-range sights, an attachable shoulder stock, and the 32-round Trommelmagazin 08.
