Though replaced by the Walther P38 as the service pistol of the German military in 1939, the Luger P08 remained in production until 1943 due to a lack of supply of the P38. Easily fouled and prone to misfire, the Luger remained extremely popular due to its accurate grip-to-frame design and its fashionable mystique. This pistol remained the main gun of both the SS and the Reichssicherheitsdienst (Hitler's bodyguards). A sound-suppressor was available, designed by the SS-Waffenakademie and likely restricted in use to the Waffen-SS. As a paramilitary unit, the Karotechia would most likely be issued the Luger P08 or one of the many pocket pistols common to the SS during the war. The P08 was also a standard police weapon, and had been exported in considerable numbers. Finland and Switzerland used slightly modified variants in 7.6521mm Parabellum.
