Description

The Pistole Parabellum 1908 is a toggle-locked recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol. The design was in 1898.

It was an evolution of the 1893 Hugo Borchardt–designed C-93. The first Parabellum pistol was adopted by the Swiss army in May 1900. In German Army service, it was succeeded and partly replaced by the Walther P38 in caliber 9mm Parabellum.

The Luger is well known from its use by Germans during World War I and World War II, along with the interwar Weimar Republic and the postwar East German Volkspolizei. Although the P.08 was introduced in 7.65mm Parabellum, it is notable for being the pistol for which the 9mm Parabellum (also known as the 9mm Luger) cartridge was developed.
