DESCRIPTION: Austrian Little Tom semi-automatic pistol in 7.65 mm (.32 ACP) caliber. Little Tom was the first mass produced double action semi-auto pistol. Fixed-barrel blowback design. This particular pistol was manufactured by the Wiener Waffenfabrik in Austria in the 1920-s. The left side of the slide displays the maker markings, "Wiener Waffenfabrik, Patent, Little Tom, Cal. 7.65 m/m". The right side of the slide shows wordings, "Made in Austria", "Not English Made" and a serial number. The barrel displays proof marks. Correct seven round magazine. The pistol was designed by a Czech engineer Alois Tomiška shortly before the Great War. Tomiška worked as a production manager at the Wiener Waffenfabrik at the time. After the First World War ended Tomiška returned to Czechoslovakia. Shortly after, the production of Little Tom began in both, Czechoslovakia and Austria. CONDITION: Fine+. 92% of original blue finish remaining on metal. The wear is mainly on the hilt and on the sharp edges of other metal parts. Other than that, the pistol shows only minor handling marks. The bore is excellent condition with strong and shiny rifling. Strong action. All matching serial numbers. All the markings and numbers are clearly visible on metal. All the internal parts of the pistol are in fine condition, with no visible wear. Nice hardwood grips with diamond checkering. Nice Austrian Little Tom pistol! C&R or FFL required to purchase. The pistol comes from my family member collection of military firearms (please, pay by check, money order, or bank wire transfer only). Serial# 313XX.

Austro-Hungarian M.1898 Rast Gasser Military Revolver with Scarce Original Holster

Caliber: 8 mm Gasser

Price: $1625

Inventory # mlp_0538

Pictures: 

DESCRIPTION: Austro-Hungarian M.1898 Rast Gasser military revolver with scarce original holster. Rast Gasser holsters are very difficult to find on the collector market. They often bring higher prices than the M.1898 revolver itself. This is an ultra rare Rast Gasser holster with fur on the flap (please, see pictures). Rast Gassers were used in both World Wars. The revolvers of this pattern were widely used in World War One by the Austro-Hungarian army. Large numbers of such revolvers were seized by the Italians at the end of the war. Many more were given to Italy as war reparations. As a result, many of these revolvers saw service in World War Two in the hands of Italian troops. The left side of the frame displays following markings, "PATENT RAST & GASSER WIEN". The revolver displays the following markings on the cylinder bridge, "W-n, Dual Monarchy Crest, 17". All matching serial numbers. Chambered for eight cartridges. Closed frame design. 4.5 inch long round barrel. Complete with the lanyard ring. The holster design is similar to other Austro-Hungarian military holsters from the period. The variant with fur on the flap is very scarce! CONDITION: Overall in fine condition. About 86-88% of blue finish is still on metal. The balance is in white mixed with some gray patina. Some blue finish is turning to brownish color. Occasional light handling marks and minor scratches on metal. Very strong action. Excellent bore with strong and shiny rifling. All the markings and numbers are clearly visible on metal. All the internal parts of the revolver are in fine condition, with no visible wear. Wooden grips with diamond checkering are in fine condition, with some minor wear and some handling marks. The holster is in fine condition with minor handling marks on leather. Very attractive Austro-Hungarian rig from the Great War! C&R or FFL required to purchase. The revolver comes from my family member collection of military firearms (please, pay by check, money order, or bank wire transfer only). Serial# 1615XX. (Ref. "Geschichte und Technik der europaischen Militarrevolver" by Rolf H. Muller, pp. 782-783).

Unusual Austro-Hungarian Mannlicher M.1905 Automatic Pistol (a Prototype?)

Caliber: 7.63 mm Mannlicher

Price: $4000

Inventory # syp_0050

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: Early Austro-Hungarian Mannlicher M.1905 semi-automatic pistol. The pistol was designed by Ferdinand von Mannlicher, one of the most famous gun designers of the period. Many Austro-Hungarian officers privately purchased Mannlicher pistols and carried them during the World War One. The pistol was manufactured by Waffenfabrik Steyr, as indicated by markings on the left side of the frame. The left side of the frame displays also the wording, "System Mannlicher Md.1905". The pistol displays neither a serial number nor the proof markings (!). This may indicate that the pistol was either a prototype for the Argentinian military contract, or a sale sample. The pistol is almost identical to Argentinian M.1905 Mannlicher pistols. The major difference is a lack of the lanyard loop on the hilt, and a lack of the Argentinian crest on the right side of the frame. Very high quality of machining and finish! Delayed blowback action. Fixed front and rear sights. Eight shot integral magazine (stripper clip fed). Barrel length is 159 mm. CONDITION: Excellent. 93% of original blue finish still on metal. Some blue is turning to brown color. The bore is well used and rough. Strong action. All the internal parts of the pistol are in fine/excellent condition, with no visible wear. All the markings are clearly visible on metal. Nice, original hardwood grips with diamond checkering. Some light handling marks are visible on the grips. This is definitely one of the of the most elegant semi-automatic pistols ever manufactured! No import markings. Serial# N/N.
