The D.W.M. pocket pistol was brought out by the Deutsche Waffen u. Munitionsfabrik of Berlin late in 1921 and was given the official nomenclature Pistole D.W.M. Modell 22, but the following year the name was changed to Pistole D.W.M. Modell 23, although the only apparent change was in the introduction of hard rubber grip pieces instead of plain wood pieces. Despite the official nomenclature the pistol is generally known, more simply, as the D.W.M. Pocket Pistol. Since the manufacture of...

Radom VIS pistol

Previous to 1935 the Polish Army had been supplied with a variety of side arms, including the F.N. Browning, Colt, Luger, Mauser, and Steyr automatic pistols and the Nagant revolver. For obvious reasons this was not desirable, and the army officials decided to standardize on a single weapon. Manufacturers were invited to submit specimens for official testing in 1935. The firms Breda, Mauser, Skoda, and two Polish engineers by the names of Wilniewczyc and Skrzypinski entered the competition. As...

Two models of this pistol were brought over by returning GI's the gray-finished pistol usually marked Model 27 and the blued prewar pistol marked B hmische Waffenfabrik on the top of the slide. The operating mechanism of this gun bears a close resemblance to the 1910 Mauser. While far from the best .32 cal. automatics, they are interesting and serviceable guns.

The Metallic Cartridge

Successful breech-loading systems were made possible only by the development of a cartridge carrying its own ignition and having an expanding case to serve as a breech seal. In its earliest form this successful cartridge was a pin fire. The primer was inside the metal case head, but was not struck directly by hammer or firing pin instead a metal pin jutted out from the side of the head of the case and the falling hammer hit this pin and drove it down into the primer to detonate the priming....

Usa Automatic Cannon Russia

The popularity of different calibres has varied depending on the tactical needs of the time. However, the first true automatic cannon emerged in the nineteenth century in 37mm calibre for legal reasons. In the middle of that century explosive projectiles were introduced in small arms. These were felt to be inhumane when used against soldiers, so an international convention was held which led to the St Petersburg Declaration of 1868, limiting their use to artillery projectiles weighing just...

OWA pistol

This 6.35 mm. caliber pistol bears some resemblance to the Steyr but is not the same and was not made under any Pieper patent.

It probably had some relation to O.W.G. and may have been manned by former employees of that firm. How long it was in operation is not known. The pistol...
