Mine is also a byf, 1942. The "Black Widow".

I haven't shot any Black Talons through my Luger. They were sitting there on the shelf when I made the photo and they just sorta crowded in. Camera hogs of the boolit world.

Since all parts are matching I certainly don't want to break anything, Why would BT's bust the toggle?
It is my understanding the Luger was designed for, and requires, full-power (NATO) ammo for proper operation.

So, I did shoot some of my "warm" self defense handloads and it functioned properly (no brass to the forehead ) and accurately. Every bang resulted in a clang.

I only fired 6 rounds. But I had to shoot it! I just HAD to.
