    Hi ph3s,, for sure this is an extraordinary item. What year would you place on this pistol? I am not a gun expert,,and all i know of an early semi auto pistol is the 1911 45.cal ACP. Regards Larry

    I used to think the same I could have had bet on that. But couple of weeks ago I realised I was a little wrong

    I do remember that 1911 was issued to U.S.M.C. in 1912

    As for early autos; lest we forget - the COLT 1900 & the COLT 1902

    This gun and parts of it you can find often in my home country, its a nice one with an interesting system
    which is still used in modern guns. The ammo is not so easy to find

    On the right grip there is a disk around the screw. There you can find maybe unit markings which makes the gun
    much more interesting

    Nice piece of austrian hungarian history

    No there is no unit markings on the disk. About it is being the first, let me rephrase: It's the first ever officially adopted by a large army such as Austro-Hungarian. Colts were issued to particular units and adopted by the US Army in 1911. 3 years later.

    The gun indeed has very interesting system, my fav is the rotating barrel.

    As ph3s is in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, ammo availability would be a moot point...
