Nice. Has anyone here shot an artillery luger with a shoulder stock at distance? I'm curious how easy 100 yard hits on a silhouette are. If I fire a 1911 at one with a top of the head holdover, I'll get one or two in the spleen but thats it.

When you think about it, this gun actually made a lot of sense for troops just behind the front lines in an age when the 5.56 cartridge hadn't been conceived of.

What initially surprised me about the only Artillery Luger I ever fired was that the toggle link moved slower than the 4" barrel Lugers I had fired. The speed of the action was reduced, no doubt, due to the added mass the action had to move with the longer barrel. Or at least that was my conclusion at the time!
