I love your guns! Thank you for the great photos. I am also a big fan of the Swiss Lugers.

I prepared this image for an article about Lugers in a Spanish Magazine



By the way Ron ...
I very much share your way of thinking, I mean your signature.

To many Spanish friends who are fans of lugers, I also say:

Hugh,
They are Swiss muzzle protectors made by Luthy. I took the photo of that group of Swiss Lugers about 20 years ago. I still have them and I have since added #109 Swiss Military with unrelieved frame and flat button magazine. Very nice condition and one of the best guns in my collection.

Ron,
I too am not familiar with the muzzle protectors. Could you tell us a little about them and their use? Were they fitted during storage or shipping or issued to the soldiers for field use ?
Thanks for another gem of information about the Swiss Lugers.
Mark

PS to Castellano, Thanks for the photos of your very nice Swiss Lugers. I have an 06 Bern and hoping to find some other models.

Honestly, I do not know how or when the muzzle protectors were used. I guess it is just part of the Swiss love of Lugers. The Swiss used the Luger regularly in competition so perhaps is as simple as keeping a scrupulously cleaned bore spotless between matches. I have seen the photos of the Luthy device in books but never any explanation regarding their use.

I think that this piece accompanied almost all factory Lugers P-06/29 pistols. It is common to find Lugers P-06/29 pistols in Swiss gun shops with that piece attached.

OK, you did it again.
Something else I have to look for to add to my collection

Note that they are all consignment items - and way overpriced in my opinion. Also be aware that the first two are for 9mm barrels and won't work with Swiss guns.

No way - they are rare and expensive, also in Switzerland
