Ludwig Loewe and Isidore Loewe were Jewish arms traders who acquired shares of several arm manufacturer companies (notably FN and Mauser) in the 1890s, forming the Ludwig Loewe company.
Actually, they originally were sewing machine makers who got a rifle contract in the 1870s and went from there. Luger, Borchardt and Mauser IIRC were all Loewe employees

Always found it ironic to say the least.
