A Challenge
 
Snapped a quick picture of my entire handgun collection today - sorry for the poor quality, hard to get natural light in my house. Anyone care to try their hand at IDing all of them?

Can't find B, H, or T, though I think T is a S&W or Webley top break of some sort.

That's a lot of handguns. How do you afford all of these?

Nyles 01-02-2009 07:24 AM

Well, the army pays pretty well and I've been at it for about 7 years now. Didn't exactly buy them all at once.

Correct, except B (no such thing as a Steyr 1910), J (it is of course a Luger, but its not a P08), K, and S. O isn't technically a Victory (actually a British No.2 Mk.I or Pre-Victory), but many collectors will call it that so I'll take it. M is of course a Hi Power, bonus if you know who made it.

Gunmaster45 01-02-2009 08:23 AM

B looks like a Steyr 1912. And is the Hi-Power made by Inglis? You're in Canada so I figure that's most logical.

Nyles 01-02-2009 07:44 PM

B is actually a Steyr 1911, but you can't tell the difference except up close so I'll take it. The Hi Power is indeed an Inglis - you can tell by the humped rear sight, made in 1944. The one I'm issued at work is exactly like it, and just as old.

Anyone care to take a crack at the remainders or should I post the answers?

Nyles 01-11-2009 11:21 PM

Ok, since no one said anything here's your answers.

F: CZ-38
J: Finnish Luger M/23 - you call tell from that barrel, too long to be a P'08 but too short to be a Navy, and it doesn't have the two-position sight.
K: Webley & Scott Model 1910 .38ACP
S: Smith & Wesson Mk.II Hand Ejector (.455)
T: Garate .455 British service revovlr (officially Pistol, Revolver, Garate, Old Pattern, No.1 Mk.I)

Any interest in another go around?

Just got a great deal on this (seller's photo):

Shouldn't be too hard to ID.

Gunmaster45 01-14-2009 02:59 AM

Colt 1902, right?
