Strange Guns

208 notes

Beautiful Charola-Anitua pistol, factory engraved. This specimen is one of the rarer 7mm variants, although even in this larger caliber the locking breech may strike modern observers as overkill.
"The mechanism of the Charola is similar in principle to the Mauser C96, with a moving wedge being used to lock the bolt to the barrel/slide (which is machined as a single unit, like the Mauser). Upon recoiling backwards about 5mm, the wedge disengages, the barrel stops, and the bolt continues recoiling backwards to eject the empty case."
