Sometimes known as the German Luger, the Luger Parabellum, or simply the Luger, the Pistole Parabellum 1908 was designed in 1898 by Georg Luger. The gun was his take on the earlier Borchardt C-93 and was one of the first semi-automatic pistols ever produced. It is also the gun for which the 9mm Luger cartridge was developed, although the first of these guns were chambered for the 7.65mm Luger. Two years after it was designed, German arms company, DWM, began manufacturing the gun.
