Have you ever wanted to own a “German Luger” pistol but not been able to get by the price that those guns command today? I know that I've kicked myself several times for not taking advantage of opportunities that I had years ago to pick one up at what now appear to be very reasonable prices.
Well, here's a very nice alternative from Gletcher Military Precision. They make a full line of beautiful guns but when I saw this one, I had to have it.
Put this gun in your hand and you'll swear that you're holding a genuine P-08, the correct designation for a German Luger. It has the heft and feel of the real thing and that's not by accident. Gletcher has put lots of time in the development of their full line of historically accurate guns. The Parabellum is no exception. From the grips, to the safety, to the magazine and to the toggle action, it's a Luger pistol. Fit and finish is excellent as well but this is not just a replica gun for you to admire. It's also a working pistol.
When you eject the magazine you'll see that it looks like a genuine P-08 magazine that's been hollowed out to accept a C02 cartridge. It's also where the magazine that can hold up to 21 BBs is located. Once the magazine is loaded, the CO2 cartridge is installed and the magazine inserted into its well, you pull back the toggle, just like in the original, to load the first round into the chamber.
With each pull of the trigger, the toggle retracts and then goes back into battery to load another round. This gun actually feels like a Luger but with less recoil and muzzle blast.
Speaking of “blast”, this gun is a blast to shoot. The trigger is very good and I found that I could get in a lot of practice time in my back yard with a suitable backstop of course. This is not a toy but a real gun that just happens to fire BBs. It allows me to practice every disciple that I need in shooting any firearm, sight-picture, trigger squeeze and breathing, and I can do it just about any time with much less expense.
If you've ever wanted to own an historically accurate, functioning replica of one of the great guns of recent times, I'd recommend that you visit http://gletcherguns.com/about-gletcher.html and take a look at what they have to offer. If you're like me, you'll see something, maybe several “somethings” that you just have to have.
