HOW DID ONE COME TO PRIVATELY AQUIRE THE ONLY REMAINING .45 LUGER AFTER GEORG LUGER? WAS SYDNEY ABERMAN THE FIRST OR JUST ONE OF THE OWNERS ?

Mike Jones is an expert on the post test history of the .45 cal Lugers. His father Harry Jones once owned one of the .45 cal Lugers.

I have agreed to write an article with him concerning these Lugers and it will appear here in a couple of months.

Ronald,

Here's what I know on serial #2 .45 Luger aka Aberman gun. The gun was left at Springfield after the trials of 1907 and was purchased by Dr. C.L. Mc Clenathen of Akron Ohio in 1913.The Doctor responded to a want ad placed in the American Rifleman by Warren G Ogden who was stationed at Erie Proving Ground also in Ohio. Mr Ogden purchased this gun Sept.15,1944 for the sum of $150.00 (one hundred fifty dollars). Mr. Ogden then sold this gun to his good friend Sid Aberman in May of 1949.

Hope this answers your question.

Mike, wonderful and interesting news.

The Norton Gallery 45 Luger, do you know anything about it?

I am heading out to New Orleans in a few weeks, the PR gentleman has stated that I can look, but not touch or get it out of the case, but plan on going to see it if I have time.
