Luger P08: two versions in this movie?

I watched this page with great interest, not in the least because I lived in Amsterdam near where some of the scenes were shot, but also because it is always fun to see a movie playing in Holland, with the Dutch characters being played by non-Dutch! Anyway, I noticed that there seem to be two different Luger P08 versions in this movie, see below.

Maybe they used some kind of copy (the one on the right) for firing scenes? Hope you can check this with a few other screenshots, PeeWee055 (talk) 05:57, 16 September 2013 (EDT)

It is possible that two different Lugers appear in the movie. The film is full of continuity error when pistols switches from one to another and back again. Maybe the reason is that some scenes were filmed in Amsterdam while others - in studio pavilions in UK. The first Luger is seen only on a close shot of Trudi's hand when she appeares, holding Sherman at gunpoint. Next second - really, next frame shows her in full height, holding a Walther! And the second Luger appears only when wounded Sherman drops a Walther but then picks a Luger. Here are some more screenshots of the second Luger:

Okay, let's just agree that this movie is not well coordinated with regards to guns. Hope they have an armourer when this movie is ever remade, PeeWee055 (talk) 08:06, 16 September 2013 (EDT)
