    Frommer Stop

    Hey guys! just picked up this beauty! It was made in 1920, and came from Hungary. It is the one of the few successful long recoil actions out there.
    After a bolt return spring change, this gun runs very smoothly! not bad for 97 years old!

    From Wiki....

    The Frommer M.17 pistol was also used in a dual-mounted tripod that fired both pistols in full automatic. The pistols were inserted upside-down and fed from 25 round box magazines.
    That would be interesting.

    Wow incredible. The craftmanship here is very cool. 100 years old and still kicking as well.

    It was developed to imitate the Italian Villar Perosa.

    The M.17 most likely would have been mounted on aircraft

    Very cool, and not something I'd seen or heard of before! I was going to guess 7.65 or 32 just because they were so popular back then. I probably wouldn't want to carry a 32 but there are a lot of neat old pistols in that caliber.

    What a wonderful clean design, How easy is the hammer to cock with thumb???... And Does the hammer push the firing pin forward of the bolt when the hammer is at rest forward???

    That dang thing looks like an adult Benjamin BB Gun
