The Pistole Parabellum —or Parabellum-Pistole Pistol Parabellumcommonly known as just Luger [5] —is a toggle-locked recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol produced in several models and by several nations from to The pistol has been used in fictional works by many villainous characters over the past several decades because of its association with Nazi Germany.

The Luger has a toggle-lock action which uses a jointed arm to lock, as opposed to the slide actions of many other semi-automatic pistols. The toggle strikes a cam built into the frame, causing the knee joint to hinge and the toggle and breech assembly to unlock. The barrel strikes the frame and stops its rearward movement, but the toggle assembly continues moving, bending the knee joint, extracting the spent casing from the chamber, and ejecting it.

The toggle and breech assembly then travel forward under spring tension and the next round is loaded from the magazine into the chamber. The entire sequence occurs in a fraction of a second. This mechanism works well for higher-pressure cartridges, but cartridges loaded to a lower pressure can cause the pistol to malfunction because they do not generate enough recoil to work the action fully.

This results in the breech block either not clearing the top cartridge of the magazine or becoming jammed open on the cartridge’s base. Submachine guns were found to be effective in trench warfare during World War I, and experiments were conducted to convert various types of pistols to fully automatic machine pistols, including the P The Luger proved to have an excessive rate of fire in full-automatic mode, however, as did the Mauser C Luger pistols were manufactured in Germany and Switzerland to very close tolerances and exacting standards using the highest quality materials of the day, and original pistols were known for having a long service life.
