So is there a reason to have Jan Still's "Imperial Lugers" as addition to "The Borchardt & .." ? Will I find in it what I can't in Simpsons book?

Jan Still's book is an interesting and very well organized work with first class photography although much is black and white. I frequently look at mine.

It is well worth owning both. The information in Still's books is organized well and, depending upon what you are looking for, can be easier to find than in Gortz & Sturgess.

You can't have too many Luger reference books... period.

Just received today my signed copy of "Navy Luger 1904 to 1940" by Dave Molchen. Excellent book and highly recommend.

Norme
I've just joined the luger forum and was browsing through it. I saw your comment concerning Imperial Navy Lugers above and I too am interested in Navy lugers and have only a Navy type luger (1920) that must have been put together from left over parts after WWI ended. Sad to say it has been refinished but very well done . There is a photo of a 1920's Navy type luger in the book "Lugers at Random" that appears very much like the one I have. Mine has the name "GERMANY" stamped on the right side of the receiver. It is a very accurate luger with an original Artillery luger shoulder stock atteched.

Using a non-Navy shoulder stock with a Navy Luger creates an unlawful SBR, which is frowned upon by the BATFE. Shoulder stock use is only exempt from the prohibition when pairing stocks with guns in originally-issued/historical configurations.
