I know that purists don´t like Luger conversions and customizing, but the idea here is that it´s proof that the idea is still alive. Georg Luger was working on variations until the time of his death. There are at least two people working on .22 Lugers here in Germany; Werle (see Waffen Werle - Links & Resources) and Johann Uhl. The simple idea is to use the Erma kit. A competition .22 Luger needs a heavy barrel. Mine was too heavy and has since had the sides milled off. The Erma conversion is not all that successful. It needs careful attention to the main spring (from a P 38) and the ammunition used.
