Interestingly enough, those .22 Stoeger Lugers ARE genuine Lugers, at least legally in this country. Back in the days of the German imports, Stoeger trademarked the name "Luger", so they became the ONLY U.S. company that can legally use that name on a gun. Even Mauser, when they resumed production of the pistol in the 1970's, had to use the name Parabellum; they could not call it a Luger even though they are the corporate descendant of the original manufacturer.
