I was just looking through the January issue of "American Rifleman," magazine and noticed an interesting item on page 30. Ever since Z3BigDaddy (Blaine) posted about buying a Model 1901 Colt revolver with a "J.T.T." for "John Taliaferro Thompson" inspector marking on it, my interest has piqued regarding J.T.T. inspector marked martial pistols.
The pistol pictured in the magazine is a 1900 Eagle Test Luger, with John Thompson's inspector stamp on the right hand side of the trigger housing.
I found the brief article on the subject by Bruce Canfield to be very informative, and thought others on the board might want to take a look at the feature in their own copies of the magazine.
Perhaps Murray Willis might have something to add on the subject, since he is a Luger aficionado.
