I do not think that Bond ever had his own Luger in any book or movie. Hugo Drax and Doctor No both had lugers, but they were not Bonds obviously.
And oddly, (although this is obviously open to interpretation! ) I always thought the gun in that logo above was the Walther P-38. A firearm Bond has indeed used. But now that you mention it,.. they have a lot of similarities of course, but it may look more lugr than p-38

Beretta, Walthers of all shapes an sizes of course, 1911, a host of revolvers, Browning high power,. etc.
No luger.

Lugers are odd looking pistols. As a child I felt they were the coolest looking pistol ever made! In my old age, I find much of what I thought was "cool" as a child I find ugly, brutal or grotesque as an adult. Lamborghini? brutal. A Jaguar is elegant.

Luger is ugly to me now. 1911 can be both beautiful and ugly depending on who fitted it out with what, but most of Brownings designs have an elegance to them inherently IMHO. Colt revolvers are oh so beautiful!

LOL CDS.
If you are to trash anything you own and find ugly or don't like, could you please call me first!
Exactly know what you say. But I still think there is no gun more beautiful that Lug. Then this was the birth place of 9mm ammo that turned to be a very very effective one even today in terms of ballistic, size, weight and stopping power.
I have shoot with luger and know how strange is the "Action mechanism" in this gun. Highly susceptible to jamming all the time. Not sure what Churchill said about Luger but I am sure many British officers and soldiers are very thankful that high rank Germens officers were using luger, probably the only reason, they survived the war, only when the bullet jammed and failed to fire. And Luger was only high rank officers gun, not supplied to everyone. May be Hitler knew some of his officers may one day stand against him and just made the precautionary measure:)
BTW here is one eg:

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

And yes P38 should fit any Bond at best, going with size, quality and accuracy as the story should go now adding a long silencer makes it look like any other gun, but then I believe the number 7 in 007 goes most closely with that Luger's handle.

Permission from the forum? I'm the owner of all the pictures. Some were taken by professional studios, but I bought the rights to them.

I'm a newbie here, and I don't want to break any forum rules or ruffle feathers.

As long as you own the © to them, it's OK to post them. It wouldn't hurt to make a point of saying that so that we know.

No, permission from either the photographer or owner of the images. We are mainly concerned with copyright issues.
Since you own the rights to the images, you are the copyright holder. ;)


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

I'm not sure if this is appropriate, but it is gun related. First group fired after I got my scope zeroed. Also the first batch of handloads.

Beautiful.

Can't say copy but a very good inspiration of the West Hartford Connecticut from possibly the most beautiful hand gun ever built, 9mm German Luger.

Well done.

I love the Colt Woodsman.

I have my Grandfathers too.

This is Magnificent.
Truly aesthetic. Every curve and line looks right. As if made either by Samuel's own hand or someone like Steve Jobs!
Love the blue on the gun too.
Is that an original to the date, leather holster under the gun?
One thing I can promise is that many generations of yours would be proud of ownership of this.

Terry: 100 Yards! No ways!! That is one really tight grouping.
Really awesome. May I ask what is your scope and how did you make it stable on gun? There must a secrete that I never get as my scopes always like to rock with every round instead of staying like a rock:)
BTW if you are new to Hand-loading could you pass some advice and how does it do the trick with the rapidly rising price then availability of ammo, in short is it cost effect, given the effort and investments?

The holster was made by my Grand Father back when he got it. It's a 193? gun. He carried it with him for his entire career as an Oregon Fish and Game biologist. It spent a lot of time under a pickup seat in it’s life.
