German Luger The GERMAN LUGER was the favored German handgun in World War II, though it was developed prior to the 1st World War.

Germans do not call this pistol a "Luger." They refer to it as a "Pistolen-08," because it was adopted by the German Army in 1908 in the 9mm Parabellum (for war) caliber.

Caliber 7.65 or 9mm. Eight shot magazine.

The Luger is still produced today, and is available from Stoeger Firearms Company, an American firm that has owned the Luger name since the 1920s.
