    I too noticed and wondered why the side plate and trigger were gone. But I was thinking a malfunction of some sort where there was an attempt to fix it (but obviously not in time ). It also looks like the magazine was still in the pistol as I see the spring. There is also what appears to be a spent shell casing (but I can not really tell from the pictures).

    This is all just conjecture. But fun to wonder!

    It has most likely been used and discarded in open position, the missing parts is because of all the years in the soil- and most likely the first finder of the gun couldnt help himself and tried to squeese the trigger.

    It is a interesting gun in its current condition, but the second you start to temper with it, the interest will drop. So please leave it as it is, place it on decorative display, it looks absolutley GREAT the way it is today.

    Thanks - all interesting ideas. Yes there is an empty cartridge in there. And no I won't be cleaning this up, I definitely appreciate these type of items 'as found'. Thanks again!

    IMHO the weapon was empty and locked in the rear toggle position from the hold open. The locking bolt wasn't rotated it is fragile anyway and years of corrosion did it in. With it missing the trigger plate and trigger most likely fell off or corroded away.
