POTD: Erma-Werke Luger P08 .22LR Conversion Kit

Welcome to today’s Photo of the Day! Back before .22 Long Rifle 1911 and AR-15 conversions, there was the Erma-Werke Luger P08 .22 Long Rifle conversion kit. They produced a conversion kit initially for the German Army that swapped out the toggle assembly (including the bolt), barrel, and a new magazine. Pre WWII they came in a nice wooden box and Post-war they changed to a green cardboard box.

“Includes an Erma-Werke .22 caliber conversion kit with green factory box and a DWM toggle assembly for a 9mm Luger.”
