Default Luger 45 ACP Project

Happy to report that 45 Luger project is near completion, We are still working on dies for stamping the magazine, but the gun was tested with one of Mike Krause s magazines.

Id like to see harder lips and magazine body, as I can only reliably load 3-4 rounds in Mikes magazine, and lips started moving on me.

I ordered 1095 spring steel to use in making our magazine so it can be hardened.

Showed the gun off at the Allentown PA show past weekend, Ed T. can be a witness to that, he was there too.

Sold 9 out of first batch of 12 guns already, visit the site for more info and pictures

That was me. I couldn't read it.

I had noticed that.

I have never wanted a .45 Luger but I support your endeavor.

All it takes is to take a couple of shots from one, it shoots like butter,
Probably the softest shooting handgun in 45ACP,

And probably 10mm will shoot just as soft out of it.

Default sharing

Ed T,
was in the loop, he just does not share all that much ;0)

But on more serous note, thanks to Ed for his support at the show.

And maybe he will be taking one to show off at the next show he is goign to.

Or do I need to say most likely

its a fairly important project, so I didn't want to spoil it. But when I showed my carbine you made, I showed 45 parts. You've done well, that stack of frames and uppers is the big work. You've got all the toggles and internals all done already right?

And it had to be new, larger parts, not same 9mm luger size?

All parts are different sizes,
Only extractors and ejectors can be reused from P08,
But ALL parts are made new from scratch

I'm still curious why the rear of the frame is cut for the lanyard clearance, but I see no lanyard loop.
Do you plan to add the loop in production pieces?

But will do the loop for sure

Beautiful work. A baby in .45ACP would be an impressive pistol to behold at the range!
