    Is this a question?
    I got a question; which one won World War II?

    While I like your gun, the answer is NO! JMB for the win!

    Not really a question. Both of them are great designs for the time period and went head to head in testing and JMB won out. The Luger my grandfather brought back from the war. It is my responsibly to pass on now. I kinda wish he would have brought back a 1911 but he didn’t. So I appreciate the design and love the 1911.

    I'm trying to understand why the Austrians insist on such a steep grip angle.

    The grip angle is worse than glocks. But I only shoot it on Fathers Day every year.

    I wonder why the concept of a slideless barrel (Luger, P38) never caught on? Balance? Reliability?

    The story I was told of how my grand father acquired this Luger was as follows.
    He was flagged down while driving a military vehicle by a German officer. The officer wanted to surrender and had with him a case of Lugers in cosmoline and my grand father took him prisoner. The German officer had a holstered Luger and my grand father took it from him. My grand father was going home and tried to bring the box of Lugers back to the states but was only allowed to bring back the holster, belt, Luger and 2 mags. I wish he would have brought back a 1911.
