LP-08 Artillery Luger 9x19mm

Description

The Lange Pistole 08 or more famously known as the Artillery Luger is a legendary variant of the world-famous Luger pistol. This Luger is a variant of the Luger P08 pistol and is a bit different due to its notable features like a 7.9” barrel (200mm) and a leaf style sight that would be common on Mauser rifles. The sights were calibrated to aim at 800 meters which is quite something for a pistol. These pistols would come equipped with a leather holster rig and board style stock that would lock into the lug of the pistol frame. The German Kaiser authorized the approval of the project on July of 1913. Soldiers tasked with artillery carried this weapon as rifles were much too cumbersome for that task. Aviation units and infantry unities would also be equipped with this weapon in the Western front of WWI. This pistol could take standard P08 magazines but would also be able to use the famous 32 round Trommelmagazin “Snail Mag”. At the end of the first World War production for LP 08s stopped in 1918, this pistol was getting phased out for the MP-18 sub machine gun that served better use for infantryman. The Germans built many LP 08 barrels, so they used some of them for export orders into the early 1930s for contract and commercial models.
