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.
