All one has to do is to grasp the GUNFACTS/MARCH-APRIL-70 57 Still, the sex appeal that carried the Luger and now will doubtless carry the Mauser Parabellum on to more glory is quite evident in these photos of a reworked M 1929 Swiss Luger, which was quite the crudest basic model. It's too slim forward to holster in any usefully rapid fashion, it doesn't like dirt, it doesn't feed and eject unless everything is just right, it's muzzle-light-the list of negatives is long, but it sure is pretty. It never would have gone back into -production except that economic factors changed radically.
This would be OK had Geo rg Luger managed not to foul tllings up . The ejection port and the extractor are at 12 o'clock, wllich means the ejector belongs at 6 o'clock. We find it, however, at 4 o'clock. The case then is flung as much leftwards as upwards , and of necessity smashes into the left wall of the receiver. With luck, like a billiard ball , it will make it out the overtight ejection port on the first bounce. Obviously it doesn't always find the exit. That this poolroom routine is in fact what happens is easily proven by a look at an ejected empty.
