    If the one in the link here is supposed to have 90% finish, one could suspect, that the Borchardt in the above post with almost midnight black finish is refinished (top pic in post #19)

    1893 Borchardt Pistol at Gun World Los Angeles - 818-238-9071

    With the angle of the stock they look awkward to fire, how are they?

    My exact thought,Ben....awkward looking things....is probably why they "improved" them into the Luger....
    I wonder just how often these stocks were actually used in the field.

    Not a service weapon-it's significance is that it's the first practical automatic pistol but soon overshadowed by the Mauser C96, the first successful auto pistol and others like the Luger, Roth Steyr etc-like most pistols of the time it used its own proprietary ammo so military use wasn't going to happen unless a govt bought it in numbers and no one did.
