Guns For Sale - DMW -- P-08 Luger 7.6mm 30 caliber pistol_S5


This auction is for a  DMW P-08 Luger 7.6mm (30 caliber) pistol.  Mechanically this gun functions well and condition is very good to fine.
This is a 1920s model commercial version in 30 caliber Luger chambering.  NOT 9mm Luger
Note: the wooden magazine base is cracked seen in the photos.

- Slotted for wooden holster use
- 4" barrel 

The Luger is a toggle locked, recoil operated, semi-automatic pistol that is chambered in 9mm Parabellum. It utilizes an adjustable front blade sight and a fixed V notch rear sight that is located on the rear toggle link. It is fed by a single column 8 round detachable box magazine but it can also be fed by using a 32 round detachable drum.

The Luger or more correctly, Parabellum-Pistole, has been given many names. It was originally named Parabellum-Pistole System Borchardt-Luger, but others include, Pistol Parabellum, P08, M08, Luger, the Swiss called theirs the Ordonnanzpistole 00, and dozens more. Then there are the sub-variations. 

The Luger uses a unique toggle-lock action, which utilizes a jointed rocker arm. The barrel and toggle assembly is locked together when a round is fired and then travel rearward due to the force of the recoil. After this rearward motion has traveled about a half an inch, the toggle strikes a cam that is built into the pistol frame causing the knee joint to hinge and the toggle and breech assembly to unlock. At this point the barrel strikes the frame which stops its movement but the toggle and breech assembly continue, bending upward at the knee joint and extracting the spent casing from the chamber and ejecting it. The toggle and breech assembly then change direction and start to travel forward under spring tension and the next round is stripped from the magazine and loaded into the chamber. While this might sound like a complicated and timely process, the entire sequence occurs in just a fraction of a second. The Luger is also is the only pistol that used an anti-bounce lock which is provided so that the rapidly moving bolt does not bounce back from the breech face on closing and before the mechanical locking system can take affect. This system is common on light machine guns using a reciprocating bolt.

Questions for Users
    Q:  There is no description. Do all numbers match? How is the barrel? 06/04/2013
        A:  Hello most of the places that I have seen numbers on other luger pistol's do not have any numbers on them at all on this pistol. There is two number 10's in different places on the pistol. The bore is somewhat frosty but still shiney with sharp rifling the bore does have some signs of use with what looks like it could be very slight pitting or just signs of wear I cant tell for sure. Thanks for viewing our auction. 06/04/2013
