Waffen Werle Luger Hybrid Monstrosities

My friend, from Hong Kong, shared this with me. At first I was confused. This couldn’t possibly be real steel. An AK Luger? It doesnt make sense. The barrel is not even attached to the front sight. This looks extremely dangerous. So it has to be airsoft right? Wrong. I discovered Waffen Werle, a German gun shop that specializes in Luger modifications.

M4 Luger anyone?



M1 Luger.

Double barreled luger. The main rifle is 9mm, and the bottom is a .22LR pistol.

You can check out their website for more pics and info.


They even modified a M1 Garand into a M1A hybrid using M1A magazines.

    The…barrel…on that first one. Extra special arrangements.

  • iksnilol

    These guys must be some of the best trolls on the planet… *sniff* so beautiful.

    In all seriousness, that collapsing wooden stock is awesome.

    EDIT: I know German and checked out the site. They made .45 ACP Lugers! here’s a pic:

  • Hellloooo concealed carry Luger!

    Those people are monsters.

    How do you say “Bubba” in German?

    • El Duderino

      The tacticool one, sure. The others have some darn nice craftsmanship.

  • Blake
  • BattleshipGrey

    I like the M1 Carbine conversion the best. If they did a Mini Drako pistol version I’d probably like that even more.

  • NDS

    Incredible work. Apparently excellent craftsmanship but dear God why

    • Nicholas Chen

      I know right? Kudos to them for doing this, but why would you do it in the first place? Who wants to pay for this kind of work?

      • BryanS

        Going to go out on a limb and say these may be the result of red tape, in an area where ownership is restricted to grandfathering or other nonsense.

        • Jonathan Ferguson

          Nope. Pure whimsy for its own sake. I don’t get it either, but it’s not done for legal reasons.

      • RobertNorwood

        Why would anyone mess up a perfectly good Luger and have it be what it was not designed to be? I see no combat value in those pieces.

  • Pete Sheppard

    I hope the pistols are easily restored to their original configuration.

  • gunsandrockets

    No. Just No.

  • No

  • gunsandrockets

    It’s like the firearm version of The Island of Dr. Moreau!

  • The sleep of reason produces monsters.

  • DetroitMan

    So how many 9mm rounds does it take to blow the front sight off of that AK model? (Unless I’m missing something, the barrel is actually running through the AK piston tube.) Better wear your safety glasses with that one.

    FACEPALM…..Well, it is art, ya know. ­čÖé

  • iksnilol

    Sorry for doubleposting but check the gallery. They also made a .45 acp hunting carbine. It is a long barreled luger with a stock. But it is unique due to having grips and mags with a cutout in them allowing you to load it without removing the magazine.

    Also, the shortened Garand with the red dot instead of a rear sight is ingenious (it is made for driven hunts).

    • Dracon1201

      That is actually beautiful. I want one.

      • iksnilol

        I know, I sorta want one too. I really like the idea of being able to load rounds without removing the mag.

        • Dracon1201

          Agreed, I just love how natural it looks.

          • iksnilol

            It looks so classy while being practical.


          • Dracon1201

            Yeeeaaasss! It’s right in line with my ideals of a perfect rifle. Now use the M1A conversion and go to 6.5 grendel. That would be something.

  • William Johnson

    A whole new meaning to the term “frankengun”

  • USMC03Vet

    Kill it with fire!

    • Swarf

      That first one is going to kill itself.

      I like the M1 carbine, That has more to do with it looking like the original, I reckon.

  • Valis InUnderland

    i love the luger, so i dont know whether to love this or hate it,

  • janklow

    why are they doing this to these poor Lugers?!

  • Cknarf

    I think they’re actually kind of neat.

  • screwtape2713

    So if I have some crappy old Luger – a pre-WW1 DWM boxed commercial model, for example – I could have it modified into something modern and useful such as a 9mm M4 lookalike? Good to know…

  • Tierlieb

    When Werle is not demonstrating that he is both the master of the P08 system and slightly crazy, he does do nice conversions of M1A into 8×57, 7×64 and 9.3×62 and M14 in 300 WSM. That’s fricking awesome.

  • Secundius

    Pistole Parabellum 1908, is a Pistol Parabellum 1908, is a Luger P08. Changing the Configuration, doesn’t do ANYTHING to the ACTION. It Shot’s When it shot’s. Temperamental at the Best of Times, and Non-Functional at the Worst of Times…
