Lahti

 

a city and port in Finland, in Häme Province. Located on the south end of the Päiänne Lake system. Population, 88,700 (1970). Lahti is an important railroad junction. The city’s industry is represented by lumber processing and woodworking (sawn lumber, plywood, matches, and furniture) and the production of equipment for the pulp-and-paper industry; there are also textile, footwear, glass, and food-processing enterprises. Lahti is the site of Finland’s biggest radio station and a center of tourism and winter sport.

Present-day housing construction in Lahti is distinguished by diversity in the planning of neighborhood districts that blend organically with the landscape. Structures built in the 20th century include the city hall (1912, architect E. Saarinen), the concert hall (1957, architects K. and H. Siren), and a bank (1964, architect V. Revell). The Peace Monument was erected in Lahti in 1950–52 (granite, sculptor W. W. Aaltonen).

In the first place, the Luger-like pitch of the Lahti grip, when combined with the grossly oversized Lahti frame, cramps the hand in such a way that the finger cannot gain proper purchase on the trigger.
In the second place, Lahti triggers are horrendous: they lend new meaning to the words "gritty" and "stagy.
Third, and to compound the practical accuracy problem still further, Lahti sights are far from optimum, even for service use.
it is difficult, for example, to mash your thumb against the triggerguard with a Lahti to control muzzle flip.
As a result of all this, what the Lahti wants is a "long" Parabellum round--one that measures close to the 1.
