The unofficial “Luger” name originates from salesman George Luger who played a part in designing of the gun. P08 was a standard sidearm for German troops in World War I and it continued to serve until end of World War Two. In time period between WWI and WWII Luger P08 was manufactured in non-standard 7.65mm caliber due limitations placed in Treaty of Versailles. Normally Luger P08s were manufactured in 9 x 19mm Parabellum caliber.
