Strange Guns

As a last post for a little while here’s the Clair, with a rare photo generously found and supplied by ForgottenWeapons.com. Check them out if you haven’t already, they’re very knowledgeable folks and Ian in particular is quite the helpful sort if anyone has questions about some of the rarer firearms out there.
"The French Clair pistol of 1893 is one of the lesser known and least documented early automatic pistols, and unusual in its method of operation as well. The majority of the successful early automatics (the Borchardt/Luger and Mauser in particular) used short recoil mechanisms to unlock, but the Clair was a gas operated design."
