Default They

Well, the first of the guns I bought overseas arrived yesterday. An Austo-Hungarian Roth-Steyr 1907 in 8 x 19mm, made by Steyr in 1909. Very neat gun, it has a 10 round internal magazine loaded by clip from the top (like a Mauser Broomhandle) and a semi-cocked striker trigger mechanism not at all dissimilar from a Glock.

This one is regimentally marked to the 10th Dragoon regiment (Dragonerregiment Fürst von Liechtenstein Nr.10), garrisoned in Krakow and serving (actually in a mounted role) on the Russian front until 1917.

Nice weapon, I'd be interested in seeing it fired.

So would I, but 8 x 19mm ammo and espescially the clips are about as rare as rocking horse poop, so I'm not holding my breath on it in the short term.

That's a damn shame. It'd drive me crazy if I had a gun I couldn't shoot

My Artillery Luger (Properly Luger Lange Pistole 08) and schneckl trommel magazine arrived yesterday, and it's a beauty. Every single part is serial numbered, and every number but the magazine matches.
