    I have collected thus far information about 1200 of some plus 8000 Luger/Parabellum pistols bought by the Republic of Finland during the 1920s. All of the 1200 were issued to various peacetime artillery units. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time and energy to type these 1200 records into digital format. However, you may request information about individual pistols in this thread, if you feel so. These records form excellent starting point for additional research.

    I have frame 4088 L, which was rebuilt with a 3" Tikka 9mm barrel.

    Thanks for all of the terrific research!

    According to my records, No. 4088 was shipped from A.T.V.1 (Ase- ja ampumatarvikevarikko 1, "Arms and Ammunition Depot 1") to RTR (Raskas kenttätykistörykmentti, "Heavy Field Artillery Regiment") at Viipuri on April 4, 1924. There was nothing to remark during the acceptance inspection at RTR. The pistol was issued with a stock, holster, cleaning rod, spare magazine and "chisel".
