“US Army test Luger in 45 ACP. Two were made to compete against the 1911. Nobody knows what happened to them.”
I know of some people, who had this same thing happen to them. Only difference was: still a USGOV test, but the company was Surefire. Sure would like to know what they did with that stuff......🤷‍♂️🤔

    I bet I know...they jammed lol
    Actually, they did not.

    I’m pretty sure there was an entire show on the history channel that had this in it and they actually interviewed the guy who currently owns the only known functional original.

    It appears that politics were involved and they didn’t wanna buy German gun. Not that I blame them because because of 1911 is a pretty practical gun, and the Luger is a very complicated gun by comparison.

    I’m guessing the extra umph of the 45 helped.
    german ones would jam like crazy when the got dirty. Most officers replaced them in the field ASAP.
