Patrick, I'm aware of Jason's problems but I'm afraid this issue is much older than his computer breakdown. Maybe I'm overreacting but other than in the "Soldatenheim" section I find it a bit tedious constantly getting exposed to an ever increasing mediocre cocktail of all sorts of unprofessional fa...

Timo & Christoph,

Don't respond to this post.
I've moved my post to the "Comments and Suggestions" section for a public discussion on the general state of the Feldgrau forums.
Please give me your opinions there!

Chris, The only version of the P 08 with a "short" barrel (very short, about an inch or so!) is the custom made "Baby lugers" made by John Martz (California) in the 70:ies. They are, as stated, custom made aftermarket barrels and not factory issue ones. There is a picture of one on the dust cover in...

Macke, After World War I, Germany was totally disarmed (as you may know). In the beginning of the 30:ies Germany re-armed. This had to be done in secrecy (mostly because of the Versailles treaty but also to maintain security for the factories and plants). Manufacturers and sub-contractors were assig...
