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.
