Default The (in)famous .45 US Army trials Luger on GunBroker!

I can't see the real deal being sold on GB, I'd expect it to be auctioned by Southby's or similar...

https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/1007488896


So is it really "The One"?

It's not a .45 cal. It's 7.65 cal., the same as the M1900 Test Eagles. This Luger was previously discussed on the forum.

Really?!... This is in his description, on Gunbroker... " Legacy Collectible Authenticated and Luger Forum confirmed."

Did I read that right? They are asking 9000 dollars short of two million bucks for this pistol??? Ah I see, one million yen, or one million pesos, or one million drobniks, couldn't be dollars.

Sounds like its a dubious as a Singer 1911 - as we all know, of the 500 made, only about 2,400 remain...

It's a MARKETING PLOY.

Free and very effective advertising

I works for GB and the promoter.
