According to the manual the Luger was designed by an American,,,
Hugo Borchardt then sold the idea to George Luger.
Um... Hugo Borchardt was German (born in Magdeburg, Germany, died in Charlottenburg, Germany).

He did live and work in the United States for a long time, but he designed the C-93 Borchardt semi-automatic pistol (on which the toggle-link action of the Luger is loosely based) while employed by Ludwig Loewe & Company of Berlin.
