PARABELLUM

This documentary tells the story of the competition among rival pistol designers to be the first to supply the world's military with self-loading pistols. And it shows how Hugo Borchardt's design, using a locking mechanism from a Smith & Wesson pistol of 1855, led to the iconic pistol we know as the Luger.

The DVD features live-firing of self-loading pistols over 110 years old and demonstrates the Old and New models, 7.65mm, 9mm, the Navy Luger, the carbines, the LP08 and the Snail Drim magazine.

Running time: 74min.
Available in both PAL & NTSC.
