    New Grips For My Luger

    Several years ago I bought a non-matching 1936 S/42 Mauser P.08. I've really enjoyed shooting it but the grips have always been a problem. If you saw them in a photo they would look normal but as soon as you picked it up you would notice that most of the checkering had been pressed into the wood leaving the surface slick.

    I ordered a set of replacement Nill grips through their US importer MacTecSales. Cost was around $120. They were slightly oversized so I had to gently reshape them with some 120 grit sandpaper. It took about a half hour to get both pieces just right. They feel great and I don't think they look too out of place on my 83 year old pistol.

    Very nice replacements. The rust blue finish and strawed small parts are classic.

    I think the three most recognized hand guns in the world would be the Colt SAA, the Colt1911, and the Luger, "maybe not in that order" wonder which one would come out on top if a vote was held, just thinking.
    Your new grips look really good.

    Add the Thompson SMG to that list...thanks to Hollywood. I realize it's not a handgun but its profile is unmistakable. The AK and AR rifles are modern additions.

    Don't forget the Classic Broomhandle Mauser. Thanks to Hollywood and Star Wars.

    Those grips look as if they were issued with the pistol.

    I once saw a customized Luger with target sights and a heavy slab sided barrel that really looked good to me. Always wondered why some maker didn't offer a similar version for American shooters. The Luger is just too muzzle light to suit my Single Action upbringing.

    The Luger trigger has to be one of the worse trigger designs ever imagined. The trigger pivots from the back, pressing down on the trigger lever which pivots on the back of the side plate.Pressing down on the trigger lever causes it to press inward on the front of the sear bar located in the receiver, which causes the back of the sear bar to pivot outward, releasing the firing pin. Force changes direction several times before the firing pin falls.

    The trigger bar is the bright finished part in the back of the side plate, and the sear bar is the part set into the receiver just behind the Crown/M acceptance marks.

    Interesting, I didn’t know that. And yet it works well for me. My Swiss Luger is the most precise handgun I own, it even out scores my Sig P210, so I use it for Ordnance pistol shooting competitions.
