Luger P08

A toggle lock semiautomatic pistol, the Luger P08 has become an icon of the German military during World War II. Best known as a 9mm Parabellum weapon, it was also chambered in 7.65mm or .45 calibers. The Luger was a favored sidearm among German officers, although by World War II it was being supplanted in general issue by Walther pistols. The Luger was a highly prized souvenir among Allied troops and remains collectible.
