"If you don't want to read the whole thing, skip to the recap.
I bought this gun over a year ago because I absolutely LOVE the Luger. Externally, I was not in the least disappointed. It has a great weight to it, very solid with only a little wobble in the mags. The blow back function of it is awsome and spot on for realism, the kick from it is a nice touch as well, nothing like blazing away with that unique Luger blow back after each shot. The paint does wear in places and I was kind of disappointed with that as I like to keep my weapons in perfect condition, but I got a chance to look at a real one (my grandpa captured a vis and a walthers, but no Luger 😞) and it was worn in the same places... Awsome!!!
Then I played my first game with it...
Never, never, never use this in any game that has aegs in it. I got torn up so badly, it was not even funny. Basically the maximum effective range of this pistol is 50 feet. Also, forget about hitting anyone in good cover, you just don't have the accuracy for it. What's worse is its not consistent, which is true for many gbbs, so it is impossible to correct your aim for the next shot. However, having said that, in a cqb environment, if you are a good shot, you might make this thing work. There are no cqb fields near me so I have no way to test this theory. Within 50 feet you get about a 20 inch diameter spread, which isn't too bad.
Here are the quick pros and cons for those of you with low reading attention spans.
Spot on realistic externals
Awsome blow back action
Bad accuracy and range
In recap, if you want a good reliable sidearm for serious combat, go get some other pistol. If you love the Luger as much as I do, and play mostly cqb, and are willing to trade some practicality for the joy of using a beautiful historically accurate pistol, this might be the weapon for you, just remember to get in close before you fire. Also remember this is for the 4 inch barreled Luger. The 8 inch barreled Luger might have better field stats if you are willing to trade awsome looks for better performance and use a Luger that looks like someone stuck a pipe on the end of it.
"I use this pistol a lot and it has never failed me yet. However, what everyone says about the mags leaking is true but i fixed mine. It was leaking from the o-ring in the bottom so took it apart lubed the rubber o-ring and put it back in and the leaking stopped. Also my front sight broke off and i lost it and unfortunately they dont make a replacement. This is a very good pistol as long as you take care of it, just like the real one
4 out of five stars because the flaws like the leaky mag and frontal sight breaking off are not deal breakers
Hopup doesnt work very well but hey, its a pistol, you dont need distance
Needs to be taken care of
