So jelly that he has his own personal shooting gallery..I’d be playing shoot-em-up all day everyday..lol
im one of the tens of thousands that carry the 1911
Luger is better
I have both Luger and 1911 from WW2. Both guns were jamming up like the Luger and I knew what it was. My grandfather inlaw had them stored away with the magazine full; it weakens the spring and doesn’t chamber properly.
Dude I love does guns there look cool!!
I was an mp I liked firing a M1911 at night , I liked the big flame that lit up when you fired it.
No comparison to the Soviet pistol???
Note in WWII most German officers preferred the Browning P35 "hi power" to either the P08 or the Walther P38
Very nice, detailed and professional comparison. Well thank you.
This chanel is awesome
I see no point or purpose for the Luger other than to show it off to your pals
P08 is not manufacturing anymore for obvious reasons. Unfortunately.
I have a Lugar. Airsoft though 🙁 we aren’t allowed real ones.
The Cicadas are out and about here, hard to miss… Love this channel – subscribing right now!
The P8 was infamous for jamming, even when new. Especially in the field.
The Luger is a classic, but what an odd design…
hey is the luger make them again
I had an old worn out DWM Luger and it never jammed. It was 100 years old and still fairly accurate even with a "frosty" barrel.
I have the CO2 versions of those pistols (blowback action and field strippable).
Been watching for yrs and never realized I wasn’t subbed. Well I am now lol
Po8 had 3 different variant of barrel
This is the shortest,it’s a medium and long,isnt?
Both is different to compare,necause different calliber,both is iconic
1911 is just sexy as all hell. I can never get enough of looking at it.
Luger v 1911 , the luger had a special tool in the holster to load the magazine, thanks for the nice video’s
Lol i know if they from ww2 they dirty dirty…
Until I can blow up a Tiger tank with the Luger P08 I’ll stick with my 1911 lol. Seriously though the Luger is a cool looking gun and I would love to own one. I still think the 1911 is a good looking gun even at today’s standards.
Walther P38 vs 1911 would be a better comparison.
Lugers are great but I’ve heard they have a hard time cycling modern ammo.
Germany weapons > all
Browning hi power any day
The PO8 was designed around Winchester white box.

For Luger you used wrong amo For sure
I think luger p08 is better than 1911
I own a DWM 08 build 1914, it is complete with spare mag, holster and tool and it shoots well with the Winchester 9mm subsonic. And I own a Colt 1911 A1 from the early 70s. As a german I love my 08, but I shoot the 1911 far more often. And I EVER prefer ’45!
I realize I am a year late, but if your
Mag has a button, use an old electrical plug (US) put the prongs on either side of the magazine and it is easy to push down to load
Hi I love your videos
Luger was pretty much the ultimate war time trophy morbid yes but if yea pull one of a dead SS officer yea might not feel too bad about it
I watched a video not long ago about the complete take apart of a Luger. Way, way too much machining and complexity.
My wife’s grandfather was in France, Germany, and at the Battle of the Buldge.
He brought back a Luger and a Walther PPK which he took off of two different officers. This particular Luger was clearly a precision made weapon, made before the height of the war. The tolerances are indeed very close. It’s def a really comfortable weapon to hold, and super accurate to shoot. The Walther was surprisingly accurate to shoot and wasn’t at all picky about ammo. I really do like the way the 1911 feels though. I know I’d def rather have a .45 than a 9mm or smaller in a personal defense weapon. It’s hard to conceive of a time when the US military used a .38 special as a sidearm. I’m sorry to say what happened to the captured German weapons my wife’s family had. If I could go back in time, I’d educate my mother-in-law about financial predators. She trusted someone who she should never have given the time of day to. What a shame. I did my best to warn her but it just wasn’t enough.
Not sure the logic on the luger but perhaps the idea was functionality in close combat, like that of revolvers. The slide can never be out of battery in a fight. That slide up makes it very clear when the slide is open and empty.
I was impressed how well the 1911 feels even compared to modern guns.
Ze Germans are good engineers.
Who cares? Be a chad and duel wield them both.
1911 has always been my favorite pistol for some reason
