So they used a knife during a gun fight?
 
2021-01-13 9:14:14 AM  
That's not a knife.

First the knifing.  Then the spooning.

Luger pistol was invited in 1898, I didn't know the NAZI party was around back then.

Does that count as deescalating?

What ammo does a LUGER take?  FFS.  I wonder if there are any rounds that might give us a clue.

Nope, no idea!

Lupisque: Luger pistol was invited in 1898, I didn't know the NAZI party was around back then.


It was used through WW2 along with the more common and easier and cheaper to make P38. It was distinctive and iconic enough that I don't think many people even realize they predate the Nazis.

I'm thinking about getting a Black Widow that has all the nazi markings dimpled over. Very antifa.

I've seen a few chambered for 7.62, but 9 was more common.

Lugers were first chambered for 7.65x21 Parabellum. Later 9x19 Parabellum*.

A few were built in .45 ACP for US Army trials and are worth a fortune now.

There have been a lot of Luger-derived pistols built in other calibers like .22 lr and .380 ACP.

9mm Luger is an Americanism adopted around the time when Lugers were the only pistols chambered for the round. Parabellum was the name given by the inventor.

Luger's were adapted to take many different calibres... Most common were 9x19 and 7.65x35, others were made in everything from .38 ACP to .45, I've even seen them in the tiny 6mm calibre and monster .50 cartridges too. These days you can get them in pretty much any size you want

There were definitely P08s in the film, but the scene where Indy shoots through all the guys on top of the tank is a P38.

You can see it pretty well here:

A Luger doesn't have a hammer or a band that goes around the barrel just ahead of the chamber.

Yup. The luger doesn't have a slide. Thr luger has a very distinctive toggle lock that the gun Indy is handling doesn't have in that photo.

Ok on second look - its neither.

The upper resembles a a p38 while the lower has the trigger guard of the p08.

I don't think the trigger guards are quite different enough to distinguish from that angle.

All the other P38 appearances in The Last Crusade are pretty conventional.

Well, yes. Both parties would have been arrested immediately in Austria for violating hate speech laws for bringing the subject up.

Based on what the article said, they did look it up. Then Stabber called Stabbee a b*tch, Stabbee got offended and went to the kitchen and pulled out 2 knives and threw one at Stabber.

The P08, which was the one the Nazis used used the above, but other models used 7.65mm.

I guess one part was a sore loser. Or to stupid to understand that he was wrong.

Yeah, so you'd lose such an argument, because they also used 7.65mm

Over such a long production run, I guess that could happen.

That was the intent, but they were kept in production throughout the war. I haven't looked at the numbers produced overall in WW2 vs WW1, but not only would I bet WW2 was higher, there were a whole hell of a lot more American soldiers in europe in WW2 vs WW1, so odds are, if you come across a Luger it's a WW2 bring back. DNRTFA, but if this is overseas, that is likely even more true of everywhere except France.

Mine is a WW2 bringback (grandfather traded for it while he was in the Air Corps), but it was manufactured in 1917. I don't know the specifics of how it worked under the Treaty of Versailles, but Germany held on to a lot of the WW1 inventory and reissued it for WW2.

7.63 would have been a lot more common.
