German P08 Semi-Automatic Pistol Replica
Click for safety information
#22-1226 - The P08 Parabellum is one of the most widely recognized pistols in the world. Designed by George Luger, it was issued to Paratroopers and German Officers during World War I and the early stages of World War II.
It has earned a place in firearm history as the first firearm to use a 9mm Parabellum cartridge. The Parabellum name is derived from Latin: sic vis pacem, para bellum. Translated, it means "if you seek peace, prepare for war"--the motto for DWM (Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken), German weapons manufacturer and the inventor of the 9x19mm cartridge commonly used in pistols, submachine guns and carbines. The Luger 8 was replaced at the beginning of World War II as service revolver for the Wehrmacht by the less expensive Walther P38, which also fired 9mm rounds. The Luger may have been sidelined, but the innovative 9mm ammo continues in use today.
The P08 was prized as a war trophy by Allied troops in both World Wars. Thousands of them were captured and brought home, and are still in circulation. The P08 is also highly prized by collectors of war memorabilia for its connection to both Imperial and Nazi Germany. Add this non-firing replica to your collection today -- an authentic realization of the Luger P08, without the high price tag that comes with an original.

One of the unique features of the P08 is the spring-loaded firing arm that ejects the used round and injects a fresh round from the clip. When
the clip is empty, the firing arm
loading, as pictured here. (The firing arm on our
non-firing replica slides up and down, but does not
lock in the up position.) Considering that it was designed in the late 1800s and put into
service around 1902, this nifty semi-automatic system was many years ahead of its time!
