Luger Parabellum P08 (Artillery)


The Parabellum P08, also known as the Luger after its designer, Georg Luger, was one of several handguns capable of functioning as a carbine. A long-barelled (artillery) model was developed, which could be adapted as a carbine by fixing a wooden shoulder stock to the base of the handgrip. Other than having slightly modified sights, this weapon was functionally no different to the handgun variant. The concept behind the weapon was reasonable enough: artillery crews, airmen and engineering troops needed a weapon that was lighter and less bulky than an infantry rifle but more effective than a pistol.
