    I've never owned one but have handled my share and shot at least one. It performed nicely and left the brass in good shape. They have all been an excellent example of the machining done to produce a P'08.

    That is part of the unique draw of the P08.

    How could an industry make it at all and in such numbers over such a long period of time ?

    The complicity alone has a beauty of function but as the Russians always ask of a weapon first how much time does it take to produce ?

    Quantity has a quality all it's own as a rule of thumb would have condemed the P08 from the start.

    This is before even looking at survivability in the field.The P08 would never have lasted a week in the environment the 1911 I carried to war so how could it prosper in the muddy trenches of WW1 ?

    Maybe that is also one reason collectors are so avid ? I could not think of an appropriate adjective on that emotion. They are a nutty bunch like most of us.
