Not too long ago I was reading about the original Lugers and 9x19mm ammo. One of the things mentioned in the article was that Georg Luger designed a step in the chamber to help with the gas sealing. Yesterday I had a chance to shoot a WW2 Luger and I, naturally, collected the brass. As you can see the step leaves a distinctive mark on the cases.

Sorry, I have no idea why this image is rotated.

All three of these were run through a carbide sizing die. The left two were also run through the expander. You can still feel the groove from the step if you drag a fingernail across it. I also noticed some small flakes of brass when I wiped them clean. I don't see anything on the inside of the cases.

Look natural to me, they are in line with the chamber. Interesting.

Didn't know this, thanks Mike.
Be interesting to see if this shortens the life of the brass.

Very interesting post. I was not aware of this situation. I will check this out the next time I shoot my Lugers. All the best...
