The .45 Luger by Mike Krause.

Two prototypes were originally manufactured for the U.S. Trials in 1906, but neither is known to have survived. At least two revised pistols with a different grip angle were made shortly afterward for possible commercial or military sales. One is in the Norton Art Gallery in Shreveport, Louisiana, and the other was sold in 2010 to a private collector.

Mike Krause specializes in this very special, very limited GL-45 in caliber .45 ACP and the "Baby Luger" in caliber .32 ACP. Mike personally hand crafts these pistols in his shop, and I can attest that his craftsmanship is truly extraordinary. Guns & Ammo magazine, Gun Digest and The History Channel have given feature coverage to the products of Mike's workmanship.
