No more 45 Lugers or P-38s

John Martz died.

When I was really into collecting guns, a Martz was a fantasy.

WAAAYYY up there in price. But cooollll....
Martz made .45 cal Lugers and Walther P-38s. Quite a process. The lugers were made from TWO lugers. He'd cut em off center so they'd make a frame big enough for the 45. Had to be exact machining and welding. Custom barrels fitted and I don't remember how he did the magazines, but I seem to remember they might have been sectioned, too.

Wish I could have afforded one back when he was going strong.
