Well that's different.
Now I want one...
It took me 1:19 to go from never having heard of it to needing one. Great find!

Very nice antique firearm! I don't think I have ever seen one before. Great find.

A little late to this thread, but I really like the various Frommer guns. I've been looking for an affordable shooter Frommer Stop for several years...it's kinda hard to pay a lot for a little old .32 ACP, but they sure are built like tanks. Where did you find the new recoil spring? Original replacement or a new made unit?
FYI regarding long recoil - several old semi-auto shotguns used this operating method, but because of the wide power range in ammo and to be reliable with all, they recoil very harshly with the heavier loads as the reciprocating parts bottom out hard at the end of their stroke. On the other hand, a long recoil gun with matched ammunition can recoil very lightly. The Gepard GM6 Lynx (Hungarian) semi-auto .50 BMG bullpup is known for its light recoil (relatively speaking).
Skip to 5:12 for slow motion video of the action working.
Piles up the brass very neatly in this video...suppressor action late in it.
Just cool shooting videos

OP - Please stop posting threads like this.
When you actually show people how much more interesting and unique many of these C&R war relics are over their generic glocks and poly pistols, they start chomping at the bit for them. Then the prices go up, and the people like you and me, who have appreciated them all along, start having trouble finding pieces for our collections. Remember what happened in 2012 when they couldn't find any more Glocks and ARs to buy? They started buying ANYTHING that was a gun... and lo and behold, many of those were Currios and Relics which the plastofiles found to be excellent firearms by sheer chance and panic.
Its best for both of us to keep these wonders to ourselves, and let the tacticool crowd keep passing them up without a blink at every gun show.
