The Lahti gets my vote, if only for the fact everyone seems to lust after Lugers and you can find them anywhere...plus i think it looks better than the Luger too

It has a standard back-then-forward mechanism used with the grips right at the back...looks like it would cock similar to how a japanese nambu does.

Fear my l33t photoshop h4x pointing it out:



Some nice reading about it HERE.

"the original L-35 was extremely reliable and robust gun, with the only drawback of being slightly too heavy."


Ah! Who cares if it's heavy, we are soldiers arent we?!

So, after you have put in a new magazine, you pull that wierd thing down? With what my thumb? Looks pretty wierd..


Heldentod: He was obviously joking about using Photoshop.

You grab it each side of the gun, with yer thumb and finger of your non-firing hand (your firing hand will be holding it ready to fire) and pull it back - then release. The slide will chamber a round and cock it in the same way as most semi-autos.

Think how a Colt 45 (or a P-38 or TT33) or especially a Mauser C96 is cocked/worked and you will get the idea. Though it looks a bit weirder there, it works identically.

And yes i was kidding about photoshop

I'd love to get my hands on both of those guns. However, being a finn, I'd prefer the L-35. It's also better looking in my opinion.

I have a Luger, never shot a L-35 but still would choose it over the Luger. The Luger is nice, but pretty much all Finnish weapons are darn good.
