It is a testament to its design that the Luger remains a mainstay of the world's armies a century after it was introduced.
From its origins in Industrial Revolution era Germany to today, this authoritative program tells the complete story of the weapon that revolutionized sidearms by making them automatic. Hear from experts like Garry James, Editor of Guns and Ammo, about how the Luger was invented and how it changed the firearms industry - and warfare - forever.
