Sheriff Frank Hamer's pistol
 

Doesn't Sheriff Hamers pistol look like a Luger?

The story says Hamers was wearing the black hat and Capt. Rodgers has the Luger.

you're right, but then we here at GB can tend to focus on the firearm and not the article, that's what I did. Kind of surprised me to see a Luger among western law men.

See them in movies set at the turn of the century some times. That would be correct.

I just recalled the one John Wayne movie with the Broomhandle Mauser.
It was great to see the picture posted.
Best wishes

Never even handled a Luger. I've heard they look great but the trigger is horrible.

Actually I was pleasantly surprised by the trigger on mine. A little heavy but broke crisp.

Trigger is also fine on mine...my only complaint is the sights being to small.

That' because it is a P-08 Luger pistol. Some Lugers have horrible triggers; it is as though you have to pull the darn trigger back through the rear of the trigger guard before she lets off however, there is/are some easy fixes. If yours is collectable and you don't want to replace parts, then try this: beneath the side plate is a lever activated by the trigger which depresses the sear causing it to release. You can shorten the travel of that lever by using some JB Weld to build up two flats on the lever - one where the lever fits into the trigger and the other where the lever fits against the sear. You can build those flats up a hair or two and then carefully work them down until you get the trigger pull you want. Also, on the sear bar itself there is a smooth milled notch that may have a edge on it that can be worked a bit for a smoother let off. HTH
