The Luger model 1900 starts the gamut. The Swiss Army was the first to adopt this model as their regular side arm. The only caliber then available was the 7.65 mm Parabellum (bottle-neck case),  the barrel was 120 mm long. It is easily recognized by its cut-out toggle buttons. It bears a grip safety and the magazine bottom is made of wood.  The entwined scrolled DWM firm logo was stroken on the flat top front link of the toggle.

- The Luger Model 1902 -

It was in 1902 that DWM created the famous 9 mm Parabellum cartridge, still widely in use today, to bring to its pistol a supplement of stopping power, which was an obvious necessity to gain military markets. The pistol underwent many structural modifications. The frame was reduced 2 mm to match the difference between the 7.65 and the 9 mm cartridge. The first 9 mm barrels are known by collectors as "fat barrels" for they were not tapered. The barrel length was reduced as well to 100 mm. To get more information, refer to our

It was in 1904 that the German Marine adopted the Luger pistol as a regulation side-arm. It asked and obtained some modifications as a longer 150 mm barrel, the addition of an adjustable two position (100 - 200 mm) rear sight and the adaptation of a removable wood board stock bearing a metal disk screwed on the left side. Produced until 1917, the Marine Luger successively underwent all the  regular model modifications. The former wooden bottom magazine bore concentrical rings. To get more information, refer to our

In 1908, The German Army at its turn adopted the Luger pistol in 9 mm calibre with a 100 mm (4 inches) barrel. Well known under the reference of P08, it did no more include a grip safety. First built up without a stock lug, this one was added in 1914, even if a specific stock for the short (regular) model was never available. From 1911 on, the pistol was produced by the Erfurt Arsenal as well.

In 1933, Hitler took the power. As a result a vast rearmement program was launched from 1934 on.
