I was at the range the other day and struck up a conversation with some friendly folks. Long story short, it led to me getting to put a few rounds through a pair of nearly 100 year old pistols. It was good reminder of what reaching out and just saying hello in our community can lead to.

Oh, now that’s not something you see every day. I love the old world industrial aesthetic on tide. How did they shoot?

They look gorgeous for sure, at home in Star Wars or a steam punk setting. The ergonomics made them tricky to shoot. They were chambered in 9mm. For such heavy pistols, the felt recoil was surprisingly stout. I would attribute it to the mass of the bolt moving backwards and the grip. The sights were the same barleycorn style you would see on a 98K. Those have always been difficult for me to shoot.

The interesting thing to me was to get to shoot historical examples of semi-auto pistols from an era where they were all still figuring out what an semi-auto pistol should be.
