TFBTV: Why Lugers Rock!

    The P08 Luger is one of the most iconic pistols ever designed, and one of the first overwhelmingly successful semi-automatic handguns to grace the Earth. It is a timeless design that embodies European craftsmanship and unmatched aesthetics. All of its parts come together to create an incredible and iconic firearm that has been prized by owners for over 100 years.

    In fact, this example is 5 years short of its 100th birthday and functions just as well as it did in 1920! The only downside of this specific example is that is fires the often hard to find 7.65×21 Parabellum cartridge, but surely the bottle-necked design of the round contributes to reliable feeding.
