WORLD WAR I Era Spanish RUBY Type .32 ACP Pistol Spain Pocket Sidearm C&R
“LOOKING-GLASS” Tradenamed 7.65x17mm Browning
Here we present a C&R Ruby Pistol in .32 ACP. These were made around World War I as military sidearms in Spain. Many were brought back to the US after the Great War or even World War II.
The trade names on these Eibar-type pistols are a virtually bottomless well. At least 45 different small companies made these pistols, sometimes marked with a company name and sometimes with names like “Liberty”, “Destroyer”, “Venus”, “Modelo 1916”, “Trust”, and others. In addition to French sales, many were also sold to the Italian Army, as that country struggled to keep up with domestic production of military pistols. Many were brought back to the United States after the Great War or even World War II.
The overall condition is fair to good. Original finish. Jeweled trigger. The action is excellent. The bore is dim with very thin/worn rifling. The left grip is chipped at the bottom. This is an attractive and substantial little pistol from the interwar period.
