After the World War 1, the various combatants in the various countries and battalions were faced with the issue of using deadlier and more efficient weaponry. The efficiency was in terms of the number of rounds that could be fired from one load, the speed at which these bullets could be fired, and the noise levels. To this effect, the Germans, the Englishmen and others all developed pistols that were more sophisticated than the enemy. The Gewehr 88 was one of the European Pistols used in WWII. It was used by the German under the infamous leadership. It used smokeless gun powder, which means that it was neater to use and in terms of noise, it was quieter.
The Browning high power was another of the European Pistols used in WWII. It was a very advanced gun that was more quieter and could fire the 40 mm caliber bullets. It had the capacity to fire 13 rounds of ammunition, and considering it was back in the 1926, it could have been the equivalent of the AK 47 of today. The Browning was used in over 50 countries back in the World War II before it was later advanced to a more modern pistol.
The Luger P08 pistol was another of the many European Pistols used in WWII. It was designed for use in the WWI and advanced for use in the second world war. It was used by the Imperial German army back in the war and was manufactured by an arms firm in Berlin, where it was the taken over by the Mauser company for further advancement for use in the second world war.
From the above descriptions, the Germans were very committed in the art of gun making and can be said to be one of the main dealers in European Pistols used in WWII which would explain why the likes of the Germans prospered thus.
