Pistols Ebetsa
In 1894, the American Charles J.. Ebets (Carl J. Ehbets) filed a patent application in which he proposed a self-loading pistol with automatic vapor. The principle was quite curious and very similar to the traditional gas operated mechanism realization - bled from the barrel through the cross-hole powder gases enter the chamber under the barrel, which pushed back the piston, which in two thrust on the side of the gun, turned the bolt, unlocking it, after What shutter moves back under the influence of the residual pressure in the barrel (the function of the piston was precisely unlocked the gate, back he did not move, as opposed to the later systems). Top five rounds placed in front of the trigger guard and could be charged as above, using the cage, similar to the then rifles and side, one patron, through the hinged lid. One prototype gun was even made in the metal - save your photos. Alas, caliber, which was made under this pattern is unknown, and his fate is uncertain - we only know that in production, he did not go, stay in one or more copies. A pity - beautiful gun. And asks in some steampunk or, say, a fantastic Westen type Firefly.
Gun Ebetsa 1894
By the way, this Ebets did not give up, and in 1897 introduced another version of the gun. That is, in fact, he had a lot of them, and patents he obtained a whole bunch, but before the implementation of the "in kind" funded above only two samples - about which we are. Gun Ebetsa 1897 had automatics, strongly resembles the device gun Colt-Browning M1895, also known by the nickname "Potato", and the shop he was much more common for a modern look - was located in the arm and was replaceable. A lot of attention has been paid to the design of the safety and reliability of operation of the arrow - is what many inventors lone working on breakthrough projects overlooked. In particular, it has been structurally completely exclude the possibility of separation of the gate, followed by the flight of his face the shooter (the sin early Colt, for example). The gun was introduced by Colt as a potential model for the production of - ironically, Ebets did it together with John Browning, who brought her to the same prototype. Preference was given to the system of Browning himself Ebets, examined both pistols, acknowledged that his work is really noticeably inferior to most parameters. That did not stop them from Browning become friends continue to work closely together.
Gun Ebetsa 1897.   
This small gun for civil use produced by the German company Adlerwaffenwerke in 1906-07, respectively. Its design is not very remarkable - ordinary gun with in-line store in the handle and automation to free gate, what then dozens of models produced. Interestingly appearance and the fact that shutter, unlike most pistols completely hidden in the housing. Cocking lever up and withdrawn, until the pile serves as a whole (in the sense that it propylene sighting slot). Despite the fact that the machine was produced commercially and sold on the civilian arms market, get it in these days is not easy - it was released less than a hundred pieces. And even if we can get it, shoot will not work for sure - the gun is designed for a special cartridge caliber 7.25 mm with a bottle sleeve, manufactured by the same company and do not use anywhere else, these days, these cartridges are preserved in a matter of copies.

Grab a gun
In 1943, George F. grab somebody (George F. Grebey), who worked in the firm Winchester, offered US Department of Defense first, probably, in the world (with the exception of DIY) project "opistolechennoy rifle." More precisely, the rifle - grab participated in the work on a carbine M1 and inspired its design. The gun had a caliber .30 Carbine, shutter cocking snap, handle, located on the side (just to the left, not the right, as in M1), the mine was to store the trigger guard - used stores of the same M1 capacity of 20 and 30 rounds. The gun was offered as a weapon for paratroopers and special forces, but was rejected as expected - the military has been the most carbine M1, which, although it was longer and heavier, but have normal organ retention and allow conduct aimed fire. As shown itself in terms of convenience and accuracy of shooting an arrow gun Grady (and showed it at all) - history is silent. What is clear is that pandora 35 cm in length (the weight is not known, but hardly less than two pounds), equipped with only one handle revolver and shoot at the same time a patron of high power - weapons, more suited to the characters of video games and anime characters than real life .
Grab a gun (without magazine)
Small and very elegant pocket pistol chambered for .22 LR - it produced an Argentine firm HAFDASA, better known for its clones Colt M1911 (produced under the brand name Serial Ballester-Molina). Actually, this was their product, apparently, so neprioriteten at the moment of creation, that even a single name is not rewarded, and therefore simply called HAFDASA. However, this gun has a very remarkable design - he fires from open bolt, as submachine gun. The gate is located inside the tubular slide boxes, cocked two side window (one of which served as a parallel and ejection port) - arrow wraps his fingers on the sides (aided by notches on the gate) and pulls back to arming. In the late 1950s, when the company went bankrupt, this pistol was the only model that was made to him at the time.
Gun HAFDASA - shutter is cocked, the store in the handle no
Some time later, several former employees HAFDASA organized a new company and began to produce her gun called Zonda. It was a version of the familiar pistol HAFDASA, differed in just a few changes. Firstly, a window into the slide box left only one on the right (the very thing that is thrown through the sleeve), and the shutter is now needed cock, slipping your fingertip for deepening before discharging - much less convenient, but apparently felt that the two windows collect too much dirt out of the pocket of the owner. The second interesting feature - the construction of the fuse. He did not lock and blocks - it is trite and simply shifts the store a little down in the mine, so that the shutter when moving from it did not cling cartridge. In other words, absolute reliability - accidental discharge is eliminated in principle. Alas, Zonda sold poorly and was soon discontinued.
Very rare version of a rare gun - Zonda in the version with extended barrel
Steyr M12 / P16 Doppel
And now pretty good beautiful designs over and began adische. No, I do not know how to actually call it, but since it's two pistols Steyr M12 / P16, combined together, then wrote something like this. Question rapid-infantry weapons during the First World powers have decided different in many ways, as well as experience, no one was, and it is a whole new world for all, then get scared sometimes. Here, for example, the Austro-Hungarian pistol Steyr M12 - itself one more Shush.Shop in the arm, but not interchangeable, charging clip above. He has ushushennaya version - actually Steyr M12 / P16. The same, but the store is longer (holds 16 rounds instead of 12) and can shoot bursts. And as if that was not enough, in 1917 the Austrians gash Spark these guns here. Special frame in which they are both attached to this frame fastened butt and placed midway between pistols sights. Single shutter is not done, that can fire pistols at a time, and if perverted, then a volley from both. This stuff was in the amount of naklёpano azhno two hundred (!) Pieces.Combat effectiveness, but the murky secrets - information about whether to use it on the front, and, if so, how successful was not found.
Frommer Stop M17
"We need more of hell!" - Decided to Austro-Hungarian military, looking at the previous sample, and gave rise to light something that I have no epithets. I can understand trying to make a sub-machine gun from a pair of pistols - if it's powerful army guns such as Steyr M12. But the production of machine gun of a pair of pocket pistols Frommer Stop - it is beyond my comprehension. Frommer Stop as such, by the way, is also one more masterpiece weapons genius - uses automatic long recoil, which is not enough that exotic enough in itself, so also quite excessive for feeble cartridges Browning 7.65 mm and 9 mm short, who fired the gun. So, the recipe for success: take the said Frommer Stop (does not specify which of the two calibers) Cut down he whispered, giving the possibility of firing bursts, lengthens the trunk three times (one must at least some aiming to provide a range), trigger change from the normal hook the trigger, located in machine gun on the back plate, as well as their long stock the store, the extra details such as schёchek remove the handle to reduce the cost structure fuck ...
Frommer Stop in its original form ...
... And turned into a machine-gun version
After that, a couple of these here ratchets mounted upside down (to facilitate the replacement stores) on a machine with a tripod. It is obvious that the Austrians tried to make its counterpart Italian machine-gun gun Villar Perosa M15, which had largely similar design (only development was special, not ersatz pistol from his pocket). According to the results of tests, but quickly realized that it was better not to show off and listen to the song about the boots - in the sense that instead of simply imitations htonichnyh slyamzili original - it did with the commercialization of an exact copy of "Italian" called MP18.
