Luger P08 artillery model, Germany 1898

Reproduction of a pistol, made of metal and wood grips, with simulated mechanism of loading and firing and also with removable magazine.

The Parabellum pistol or model 1908 (P08), popularly known as Luger, is a semi-automatic pistol driven by recoil, which survived the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles. It uses an internal slider, operated by an articulated arm, unlike the external slider common in almost all other semiautomatic pistols.

It was designed by Georg Luger in 1898 and produced by the German arms factory Deutsche Waffenund Munitions fabriken (DWM) from the year 1900. During its useful life the Luger P08 passed through the hands of several manufacturers, who were in charge of producing more than one million units of this mythical pistol that marked a before and after in the history of the short weapons.

Although the first models were manufactured in 7.65x21 caliber Parabellum, its model of 1908, is famous for being the pistol for which the 9x19 Parabellum cartridge was developed. The denomination Parabellum comes from an old Latin saying "Su vis pacem, para bellum" ("If you want peace, prepare for the war").

The Parabellum Luger pistol became very popular thanks to its use by Germany during the First and Second World War and was a pistol very wanted by the soldiers throughout the 20th century.

What is the “Artillery Luger”?

By Will Dabbs, MD

Certain names are indelibly burned into the foundations of the modern gun world. Kalashnikov made a few rifles, while Stoner’s radical black gun has ably served American troops for more than half a century. And you might have heard of a certain fellow named John Moses Browning. But we must not forget about Georg Luger.

Artillery Luger Lange Pistole 08

Towering Teuton

Georg Johann Luger was born in 1849 in Steinach am Brenner, Tyrol, and raised in Italy. He was trained as an accountant. Luger volunteered for military service in 1867 and found that he had a knack for marksmanship. This awakened a latent gift for firearms design.

While in the employ of Ludwig, Loewe, and Company, Georg travelled to the United States in 1894 to demonstrate the radical Borchardt-Selbstladepistole C-93 to the U.S. Army. Uncle Sam had little interest in the complex and finicky Borchardt gun, but Herr Luger came home with their documented criticisms prepared to do better. Using the C-93 Borchardt as a starting point, Luger crafted the improved Parabellum pistol that he successfully patented in 1898.

While Herr Luger was working on his Parabellum pistol he also designed the 9x19mm cartridge it typically fired. This modest rimless round ultimately became the most produced handgun cartridge in human history. Modern bullet design has made the 9mm the world’s most common defensive pistol round even more than a century after its introduction. Not bad for a guy trained in accounting.

Switzerland was the first military customer for Luger’s radical Parabellum pistol in 1900. The Kaiser’s Navy bought the gun in 1903. The German Army followed suit in 1908.

The Parabellum pistol briefly had a shot at becoming the standard U.S. Army combat handgun. In 1907, Herr Luger provided a pair of Parabellum pistols chambered in .45 ACP along with 746 handloaded .45 ACP cartridges to compete against the 1911 and Savage offerings. Luger eventually pulled his guns, and the 1911 obviously won the day. That first .45 ACP Luger was purportedly destroyed during testing. The second is supposedly in private hands today and is potentially the most valuable collectible handgun on the planet.

A Specialist’s Weapon

In July of 1913, the Kaiser himself authorized the development of the Lange Pistole 08, or LP08. The new design effort was spearheaded by a German Army officer named CPT Adolf Fischer. This modified Parabellum pistol sported a 7.9″ barrel, an eight-position ramp-adjustable rear sight and a detachable board-type shoulder stock. The world came to know the LP08 as the Artillery Luger.

The Artillery Luger was an amazing piece of work. The rear sight, for instance, incorporates a cam mechanism that moves the assembly left as the unit is elevated to compensate for spin drift of the 9mm round at long ranges. That’s pretty ridiculous given that this round drops 35 feet at 500 meters, but it is mechanically fascinating, nonetheless.

The Artillery Luger draws its name from its intended mission. Artillery crews had their hands full servicing their field pieces and required a compact weapon that wouldn’t interfere with their primary duties. Should their positions be threatened, however, they could bring their little Luger carbines into action in the close fight.

The Artillery Luger came equipped with a complicated 32-round snail drum called the Trommelmagazin that substantially enhanced the gun’s onboard firepower. The Trommelmagazin was effective enough in action, but it required a dedicated loading tool that was almost as complex as the magazine itself.

Artillery Lugers were typically issued along with a wooden storage box called a P-Kasten. This case carried five drum magazines as well as the magazine loader and twelve boxes of ammunition. Complete versions of this kit are rarer than honest politicians these days.

The resulting nifty little carbine caught the eye of lots of folks other than artillerymen. Before Antony Fokker perfected his synchronization gear allowing belt-fed machineguns to fire through a propeller arc, Artillery Lugers were sought after by early German aviators. The Germans actually conducted tests to determine if the 9mm Parabellum round was effective when fired against a running aeroplane engine (it wasn’t terribly).

The Lange Pistole also saw widespread use by the Imperial Stormtroopers who specialized in close quarters operations later in the war (to learn more about “Trench Raiders” of World War I, click here). The weapon’s compact dimensions made maneuvering among hostile trenches an easier chore than might be the case with a full-sized infantry rifle. Waffen SS troops even used the Artillery Luger in a limited fashion during the Second World War as well.

A Sprinkling of Human Anatomy

You can take an unloaded example of Georg Luger’s Parabellum pistol, press the muzzle against a firm surface, and observe the man’s inimitable genius. The action was inspired by the mechanics of the human knee. A recoil-driven design, as the barrel assembly cycles backwards upon firing the cam built into the frame pitches the toggle up and open, with the force required to “bend the knee” keeping the action closed long enough for safe operation.

This movement unlocks the gun’s bolt and allows it to cycle backwards to extract and eject a spent case. A coil spring in the butt shoves everything forward again to repeat the sequence. The exposed nature of the design left it susceptible to battlefield grime, but the gun was nonetheless a revolutionary advance over the revolvers against which it competed during its development.

Practical Tactical

The magazine release on the Parabellum pistol is underneath the right thumb where it should be, and the toggle action is comparably accessible with either hand. The safety is a thumb lever on the left. Forward is fire. Magazines do not typically drop free but do include a dimpled wooden floorplate to aid their extraction.

The assembled rig is fairly awkward, but it would still beat its competition in the trenches by a wide margin. While with the benefit of hindsight the Artillery Luger seems more like spy kit than an infantry combat weapon, it was an evolutionary stepping stone to later, greater things. The LP08 Artillery Luger is indeed a First World War icon.

In the early 1900s, Kaiser Wilhelm II conducted several hunting expeditions into the famed Black Forest of southwestern Germany.  His weapon of choice was a long barreled commercial Luger carbine.  With his withered left arm unable to support the weight of a full size hunting rifle, the Luger carbine was a light-weight, versatile, effective alternative.   

On June 3, 1913 the Kaiser personally approved the adoption of the Lange (long) P.08 for "the field artillery and the airmen."  Artillery units were traditionally at risk of encountering the enemy, but rarely enough that having a heavy long-barrel weapon would be a necessary burden during their normal duties.  The Lange P.08 was a compact but powerful defensive weapon that offered significantly more firepower than a standard sidearm, without the weight and bulk of a full-size rifle.

The Lange P.08 was issued to artillery units and shock troops (stormtroopers) with a full complement of accessories including a holster, wooden shoulder stock, and double magazine pouch.  During the early stages of WWI the Lange P.08 proved to be an exceptional firearm.  Its only widespread criticism was the relatively small capacity of its 7-round magazine.  This problem was solved with the advent of the 32-round Trommelmagazin 08, more simply known today as the "snail drum".  The snail drum was complex and difficult to load but reliable enough to serve as the standard magazine for the first successful German submachine gun, the MP18.

With its 8 -nch barrel, adjustable rear sight, wooden shoulder stock, and 32-round snail magazine, the Artillery Luger was a considerable force to be reckoned with in the trenches of WWI.

The Luger P08 is a less common pistol available for the major Axis powers, Germany, Italy and even Japan. It is also used by Finland. The Carbine version or "Artillery Luger" is only used by Germany.

Description

The Pistole Parabellum 1908 is a toggle-locked recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol. The design was in 1898.

It was an evolution of the 1893 Hugo Borchardt–designed C-93. The first Parabellum pistol was adopted by the Swiss army in May 1900. In German Army service, it was succeeded and partly replaced by the Walther P38 in caliber 9mm Parabellum.

The Luger is well known from its use by Germans during World War I and World War II, along with the interwar Weimar Republic and the postwar East German Volkspolizei. Although the P.08 was introduced in 7.65mm Parabellum, it is notable for being the pistol for which the 9mm Parabellum (also known as the 9mm Luger) cartridge was developed.

Luger pistols were bought by Finland in 1923 to arm their newly established military. The Luger as well as the Ruby pistols bought from Spain and other foreign pistols were most of the inventory. Later a finnish domestic design the Lahti L-35 pistol was introduced which is similar in appearance to the Luger pistol but mechanically different albeit magazine size, caliber and such is wholly identical.

The large magazine makes the Artillery Luger more like a sub-machine gun than pistol, although it still fires one shot at a time.

First adopted in 1913 by the Imperial German army to be used by artillery crews and later pilots where small arms were cumbersome most of the time and a full length rifle too much. It was later used by the stormtroops in trench raids as it was the most suited weapon at close range until the MP 18 was available.

The identifying features of it that can not be taken off is the longer barrel and adjustable rear sight which is akin to other German carbines and rifles. The stock for it is removable.

Production restarted during the 1920s, guns still left in storage would be issued primarily to artillery and Waffen SS units during the whole conflict.

The artillery version of the Luger is the pistol with the highest magazine capacity in the game of 32 rounds. Since it uses the snail drum magazine that also was fitted on the MP 18 during the first world war.

It is used primarily by tank crewmen, but also officers to a lesser extent. For the officer either replacing the MP 40 or the pistol that it otherwise would have. But can sometimes be the only weapon for personal defence.

Rare variants ingame can be fully automatic, and may have a smaller magazine such as twelve or eight.
