    Default video - possible Russian capture Luger - fall of Berlin

    Check out my clip - I was watching a documentary I got from Netflix, "Voices from Hitler's Army"....and in the last chapter, the fall of Berlin, I think I see a Russian firing a Luger to celebrate the Soviet flag being flown at the Reichstag.

    What do you think? The 'Luger' (or whatever it is) makes its appearance at the 31 second mark of the clip.

    Sir_R,

    It's a P.38!

    It does appear to be a P.38 while in the center there is a Broomhandle Mauser.

    Here’s a photo I took in the Reichstag a couple of weeks ago. Graffiti from Soviet soldiers when they captured it, carefully preserved in the now restored building.
