As many of you have seen before, I made a Luger Artillery replica a while ago. It's a great pistol, but now days, I feel that muzzle loading Nerf weapon are quickly fading out with the advent of the bolt action and breech.

I just recently completed an installation of updated componets to the Luger. Here's the new Artemis Arms P-08 Luger, Model #2, Officer's Improved.

This is the original Luger. It was a muzzle loading pistol with great accuracy.

Now, here's the Officer's Improved model. I took a 2.5" piece of 1/2" PVC and bored it out with a 5/8 drill bit on a drill press. I found that this fits 1/2" CPVC great. I then took a 7.5" piece of 1/2" CPVC and cut a 2" breech in it and glued it to the Luger. I then cut a breech hole on the 1/2" PVC the same size as on the 1/2" CPVC and slip the PVC over it. I then added my sights and taped it all up.

To load the Luger, simply twist the 1/2" PVC around so that the breech is open. Drop in a round and twist again to close it. This speeds up reloading quite a bit.

Feel free to ask questions. Hope you've enjoyed another Artemis Arms creation.

I like the look, but I have to ask: is it actually faster to twist something and drop a round in compared to just letting the dart slide down the barrel?

Well, to drop a round into the barrel is easy, but to get the full range out of the gun, you need to place the round down in the barrel. To do this with CPVC, you'd have to use a ramrod. The breech allows the round to be placed in the prime spot for max distance.

Nice. I liked the look and the performance of the original and you have done nothing but to improve the effectiveness of the Luger.

Very slick. I especially like the sights. Did you pull those off an air rifle or what?

When you posted the first edition you said you may sell one. Is that offer still open? ;)

Again, I commend Artemis Arms for yet another job well done. The Breech loading system is rather genius, considering it's a pistol.

Thanks everyone.

I got the back sights off of an old air rifle. The front is a custom build.

Poo, I'm currently building another... it might be up on the block.

Cripes almighty, that's a smooth job Starbuck. I like the sleek look, and the breech-pistol concept sure is interesting. Those sights really add to it too. Nice work.
