I have an early 20's model German made Lignose Einhand.
It its a semi auto and is cocked by putting a finger in the front of the trigger guard to cycle the action.
The pistol was developed as a self defense pistol in .25 auto for soldiers after WWI that had lost an arm or hand.
Later in WWII it was issued to German General officers to be put into a holster in their hats to be used as a last chance weapon or for suicide prior to capture.
Drury has shot it. At 15 yards he hit a 3" swinger more than once.

It's a very cool little pistol. I bet there's not too many of them around!

I have a couple Randall 1911s Curtis LeMay editions. They were the first company to make entirely stainless steel 1911s. every single part of them except the grip panels are in stainless steel.

Not super unique since its a 1911, but they are pretty rare especially the Curtis LeMay ones

Well, I don't own one. But it's certainly unique... :drunk2:

48 shot revolver

The Enouy percussion revolver was a unique revolver designed by Joseph
Enouy of Middlesex, England.

It was a "transitional" percussion revolver with a large, rotating
wheel attached to the underside of the gun. The wheel has eight spokes,
each with a 6-chambered cylinder attached. The wheel rotates from a
central pivot running from a bracket attached to the underside of the
barrel and the butt.

The design was patented by Joseph Enouy on June 14th, 1855, but there
are no records of it ever being produced and sold commercially, and is
most likely a one-of-a-kind piece.
