    My reasoning as well. It just has a style to it and the way it operates fascinates me.

    I agree. The internal bolt that jack knifes up upon firing. The sleek sexy lines. The over enginering of it from another time period. They are sexy lil guns. I was really close to buying an Eagle arms Luger. They are stainless steal clones made back in the 90s down in Texas if I recall right. One had popped up on Armslist some months back. Sore tempted but didnt bite

    I read the quality of those Eagle Arms Lugers are a bit questionable. I was tempted to try and find one of those but after reading the reviews I decided to go for an original so I would be completely satisfied.

    I hear yah. Thats news to me on the Eagles having issues. Not arguing, just hadn't heard or donr enough reserch I guess. Now I have hear that lugers in general have issues, thats why they changed over to the P38s.

    My reasoning for maybe going that route with an Eagle was I wouldnt mine shooting the tarr out it and getting wear lines on it. Now a authentic German luger Id be the exact opposite. It worry about wearing out parts, the bluing, the straw colored parts, buggering up the grips. Dont get me wrong, Id like to have a real one but Id hate to diminish its historical value and would not use it as much. I like to have toys that I can play with, just not once in a while

    I believe that Eagle arms did make one in 45

    One of my uncles came back from WWII with a Luger, a P-38 and a Beretta (.32). They were all in great shape. I ogled them many times as a kid. Told him I would buy them from him one day. Came home from college one time and went squirrel hunting with him. He had a new (to him) .22 pistol. Asked him where he got it and he said he traded the Luger for it. My heart stopped. He then advised he had sold the other 2 as well, to some friends of his.

    It was very hard for me to forgive him, but I did. He's gone now and I have his very nice example of a Remington 241. Would have rather had the Germans.

    JB, You and I have had this discussion before, so you know I love all those era guns. Now to save up more money to buy more of them. Right now I'm looking for a 1910 Mauser, another 1910 FN, along with a 1910/22 FN. Still need a CZ27, and a Femaru. Can never have enough Walthers!!!!!
