We sure don't make handguns like we used to!
Called the "Apache
Revolver" or "Apache Knuckleduster", these were made in Belgium by
Lambert Dolne in the 1870's and are considered to be one of the most
unique pocket pistols ever made.
This one fires 7mm pinfire cartridges which went out of style in the late 1800's.
calibers were also made including some that could shoot rimfire
cartridges. It's double action and can fire 6 shots as fast as you can
pull the trigger. The locking blade is double edged and wavy. Probably
less than 7,000 were ever produced.
This handgun gets its name from a
notorious French street gang called the Apaches who were known to have
used these in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
