Xmas Pressie

Article about: by Logictox Good looking pistol Ben. I see it was never refitted with the later trigger bar that came out in 1916 as many early models were. Congratulations. Can you elaborate on the trigger

    Can you elaborate on the trigger bar bit and the differences (with pics if possible) I have been looking through the "Lugers at Random" book to try and see what you meant but I am not sure.

    Cheers

    Ben,

    I edited your photo to point out the trigger bar. Notice how far back it protrudes on the 1915 model. Even if the firing pin is back the weapon cannot be cocked with the safety on. In 1916 they shortened this to allow for the weapon to chamber a round with the safety on. You can compare it to others you have. Many that I have seen were sent back and had the shorter trigger bars installed while some were left original. Yours was never changed as it has the longer bar.

    Hi Ben I'm not much of a gun nut but I love seeing collectors play Santa for themselves. The wife needs a high tolerance for that LOL.

    No ties, socks or underwear dear, I have something much better coming you can put under the tree for me.

    Now you have a collection Ben, Why don't you think of getting a section 7.1 license? That way you can collect live pre 1918 Lugers.
