NRA National Firearms Museum

For the June 7, 8 & 9, 2019 Nation's Gun Show the NRA's National Firearms Museum is proud to present  

Lore of the Luger

One early semi-automatic pistol captured the world’s attention and many countries elected to adopt the brainchild of George Luger, the Parabellum pistol.  NRA’s National Firearms Museum will be bringing a special selection of Luger pistols – many of which have never been exhibited before in our galleries.

In keeping with the international theme of this pistol design, we’ll be bringing Lugers that were issued by Germany, Portugal, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.  We’ll also showcase rare cartridge counter and target-modified pistols.

Some famous Lugers, including one that belonged to Mexico’s 37th president, Venustiano Carranza Garza, are part of this one-time traveling exhibition.

Come learn about arms history at the museum table.  Tell us about your family treasures!  Or if you want to come by and see the museum galleries in person The NRA National Firearms Museum, located 6 miles from show in the Fairfax, VA headquarters of the National Rifle Association at 11250 Waples Mill Road in Fairfax, VA  just off Rt. 66 at exit 57-A. Open daily that offers thousands of historic arms at no admission charge from 9:30am to 5pm.
