Beav, evidently other than Marble, no one is very knowledgeable of Luger history. I'm certainly not. I thought TRAP55 would have posted as I believe him to be fairly knowledgeable on most military firearms....and the Luger is quite popular.

I do not know if you are familiar with this website, but this could help. Off hand I do not know much about Lugers other than I may buy one in the future, until than I have a lot of research to do and came across this site.
