The most expensive hand gun in the world known as the “Million Dollar Luger,” the ultra-rare Georg Luger Model 1907 U.S. Test Trials .45 ACP Semi-Automatic Pistol, Serial Number 2. The Luger, more correctly known as the Parabellum-Pistole, is a semi-automatic pistol design patented by Georg Luger in 1898 and manufactured by Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken Aktien-Gesellschaft "DWM" in 1900.

Of the two .45 ACP Lugers submitted to the US Army, only one, marked serial number 2, is known to have survived. Serial number 1 is assumed to have been discarded, possibly damaged after the initial trial. At least three more of the .45 ACP Lugers were made, one a carbine bearing serial number 21. For unknown reasons, DWM withdrew from the trials after the first round of tests.
