Used as the standard German sidearm from its introduction in 1908 through much of World War II, the Luger has become a highly collectible firearm due to its unique design and distinguished service. The Luger uses a toggle-lock action, which uses a jointed arm to lock, as opposed to the slide actions of almost every other semi-automatic pistol. The Luger design was patented by Georg J. Luger in 1898 and produced by German arms manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken beginning in 1900. This 1916-manufactured pistol features fixed open sights and checkered wooden grips and includes two 8-round magazines with matching serial numbers, 1915 Stern & Co. holster, and a set of tools. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
