Beginning in 1904, Lugers were produced in 9mm Parabellum caliber, and acceptance by the German Navy
followed. These pistols also employed a coiled mainspring instead of the leaf spring featured on earlier models,
a round-topped bolt, and a change in toggle design that allowed it to be lifted rather than pulled rearward.
The commercial M06 Luger included a rearward-operating safety lever, and a breech stop that held the action
open after the last round in the magazine had been fired. The P08 is undoubtedly the most famous of all Luger
pistols. They became the standard German military sidearm in 1908, a distinction they held until the adoption
of the Walther P38 prior to the Second World War.
