    I have a Stoeger American made Luger, it is in stainless steel, is very accurate, reliable, and fun to shoot. If you pull the trigger straight back with no hesitation there is no problem, but if you take your sweet time, the trigger seems to stack on you and get harder and harder until it finally breaks, probably one of the worst trigger pulls I have ever shot. I would like to get a German Made Mauser Parabellum Luger, but in talking with others many claim all Lugers have terrible trigger pulls.

    My questions to you are these, in your experience or from what you have heard do all Lugers have terrible trigger pulls? And if they do can they be fixed by a competent gunsmith who specializes in Luger triggers?

    I've had two. Both had NICE trigger pulls. They didn't stack if I went slow. Sounds as though something needs tweaking -- and there's really not much to tweak. (I suspect that any competent gunsmith who can think his way through a problem should be able to fix this. I've heard horror stories, however, about gunsmiths who can't.)

    Both of mine were tack-drivers. Magazines were always the problem area.
