Austrian STEYR PIEPER Model 1909 .25 ACP Caliber SEMI-AUTOMATIC Pistol C&R
Made circa the 1920s in Austria with HOLSTER
Here we present a Steyr Pieper Model 1909, sometimes referred to as the Model 1908, Semi-Automatic Pistol, made circa the 1920s by Oesterreichische Waffenfabrik Gesellschaft, Steyr, Austria. The initial designe comes from Belgian inventor Nicholas Pieper. It was very popular with military and police officers in Austria-Hungary. It holds 6 shots of .25 ACP in the magazine and features a tip-down barrel. It is a handsome little pocket pistol in fabulous condition.
This is a fairly unusual design for a blowback pistol with it having a tip-down barrel. The barrel is retained with a pivoting bolt that is held by a thumb-latch barrel locking mechanism. Manufacturing on this pistol was started in 1909 and continued until it was suspended in 1911. Manufacturing resumed in 1919 and continued until 1929 with approximately 60,000 examples produced.
The overall condition is excellent. Original finish. Robust action. Reflective and bright bore. Clear markings. The right grip has a crack and does show movement when pressure is applied. Very good holster.
