The other pistol to mention as an intermediary between the original C93 and the P08 would be the C96 “broomhandle” Mauser pistol, so iconic for the WW I era. It created the Mauser 30 cartridge that is the direct ancestor of the Russian 7.62×25. A very hot round for a pistol in that day. Luger claims to have influenced the design of the C96, but it was the Mauser company that produced it.

It is also worth comparing the P08 to the Walthers of WW II, which was a much more common German 9mm in that war…
