STI International Edge
Integrating patented 2011 technology with classic 1911 design, the STI International Edge is a high capacity pistol that carries John Browning’s design into the 21st Century. Since its introduction in late 1997, the STI Edge has become the standard for USPSA/IPSC Limited Division competition. Built on the STI Modular Steel 2011® frame with polymer grip, the Edge delivers the traditional features of a 1911 with the benefit of high capacity magazines. The Edge frame preserves the 17° grip angle (like the original 1911). The design allows for double stack magazines without over-sizing the circumference of the grip.

Along with its distinctive full-length dust-cover frame, the STI Edge features traditional front and rear cocking serrations. The Edge comes standard with a stainless, high-rise, knuckle-relief grip safety, stainless ambi-thumb safeties, and a stainless, fully-supported and ramped bull barrel. The Edge ships with one 126mm magazine.

File 147045500016.jpg - (150.01KB , 1280x696 , pistol German Schwarzlose Model 1898 'Standar.jpg )
Schwarzlose is a name that most will associate with the M1907 medium machine gun used by the Austro-Hungarian army during the First World War. However, in 1898 Andreas Wilhelm Schwarzlose completed a truly advanced pistol design, well ahead of its contemporaries in design and ergonomics.
Schwarzlose himself was a Prussian, as a young man he served as a gunner and armourer with the Austro-Hungarian army before training at the National Ordnance College and setting up his own company, A.W. Schwarzlose G.m.b.H., in Berlin in 1897. While His early pistol designs gained little traction his Model 1908 blow-forward pistol saw some success but it was his M1907 machine gun, adopted by the Austro-Hungarian army, which was his greatest success. http://www.historicalfirearms.info/page/20

File 147045523525.jpg - (133.01KB , 1280x698 , pistol German Schwarzlose Model 1898 'Standar.jpg )
Schwarzlose filed his first patent for the design in Britain in 1898 while his US patent was granted in 1902 as production in Berlin began. The design evolved between the two patents with the first showing a small bolt handle on the left-hand side of the bolt this was later replaced by a T-bar configuration charging handle. Additionally the early patent describes an accelerator which would have in theory ensured the action cycled however the 7.63×25mm Mauser ammunition the pistol used proved to be more than powerful enough to cycle without an accelerator and it was removed by the time of the second patent in January 1898.
The Schwarzlose M1898 (sometimes called the ‘Standard’ or ‘Standart’) unlike many of its contemporaries, like the C-96 Mauser, was designed to be purely a pistol and not a pistol-carbine as such there was no provision for one of the holster stocks which were popular at the time. There are at least two examples of the pistol with a slot cut in the back strap to fit a holster stock but this is not seen on the majority of pistols. The pistol’s grip angle was very ergonomic making it extremely pointable. Another aspect of its design which was very advanced for the time was its controls. The M1898 had both a slide release lever (to the rear of the receiver - the pistol locked open on an empty magazine) and a safety which was designed to be thumb operated, with down being safe and up being fire (see image #1). Unlike rival pistols the controls were accessible without the firer altering their grip.

File 147045534754.jpg - (132.02KB , 1197x653 , pistol German Schwarzlose Model 1898 'Standar.jpg )
The pistol had an overly complex sight, typical of the period, that rotated for graduations from 100m to 500m. It fed from a 7-round box magazine loaded into the grip and fired Mauser’s 7.63x25mm round. It was striker fired and used a short recoil system with a 4 lug rotating bolt locking the action. This was unlocked by the barrel and bolt assembly’s recoil as it traveled rearward with the bolt being cammed by a stud in the wall of the frame. Another modern feature of the pistol was that its main spring acted as a recoil spring, a striker spring, and an extractor spring. There was also an additional ‘barrel spring’ which arrested some of the barrel’s rearward motion absorbing much of the energy. The pistol’s primary design shortcoming was that if the pin or loop holding the bolt in place sheared the bolt assembly and barrel could in theory slide of the frame under recoil and hit the operator.

The M1898 is an extremely elegant design for the period however, its manufacture must have been prohibitively expensive. The construction of the pistol would have required highly skilled machining with the bolt itself made from a single milled piece. As a result less than 1,000 were made with only serial numbers below 500 commonly seen. Some were purchased by the Boers during the Second Anglo-Boer War however, commercial and military interest was minimal with the pistol being overtaken by DWM’s Luger. The remaining pistols were apparently sold to Russian socialist (not Communist) revolutionaries in 1904/1905 for their planned revolution. However, the shipment was intercepted by the authorities and the pistols were allegedly issued to customs officers and border guards.

While the Model 1898 proved to be a commercial failure Schwarzlose continued to develop his pistol designs next turning to a toggle-locked design the Model 1900. This too failed to find traction however, his work with toggle-locks would come to fruition with the M1907 machine gun. In 1908 a departure from large service pistols Schwarzlose designed a small blow-forward pistol which found some commercial success but production ended in 1911.

Undeniably advanced for its day Schwarzlose’s M1898 was the victim of being a little late to market and a relatively small name in a field with giants such a Mauser and DWM. Schwarzlose’s company continued to manufacture firearms up until 1919 when the factory was closed by the Allied Disarmament Commission. Schwarzlose then acted as a freelance firearms consultant until he died at the age of 69 in 1936.

The Schwarzlose Model 1908 was a semi-automatic pistol, designed by Andreas Schwarzlose, released in 1908 in German Empire and produced until 1911.

The Schwarzlose employs a very distinctive "blow-forward action" operating mechanism. It has no slide, instead the mechanism is operated by the barrel being projected forward due to the gas pressure and the friction of the bullet passing through the bore, the compressed recoil spring drives the barrel back, stripping the top cartridge from the magazine, chambering the round, and pressing the cartridge head against the standing breech, which is part of the frame. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwarzlose_Model_1908

  Review: the Schwarzlose 1908 blow-forward 32acp pistol https://youtu.be/j_aNyqqxc6I
It may look like a run-of-the-mill old German pocket pistol, but the Schwarzlose 1908 is actually quite unique. It uses an unusual blow-forward mechanism, similar to only two other guns, the Japanese Hino Komuro and the Austrian Mannlicher 1894. Recoil in the gun is surprisingly sharp and painful, although muzzle flip is minimal. They are surprisingly hard to find, and I've never seen one in this kind of condition.

  Schwarzlose 1898 Semiauto Pistol https://youtu.be/rYl0dQAJMh4
The model 1898 Schwarzlose was a self loading pistol definitely ahead of its time. It was simple, powerful (for the period; it was chambered for 7.63mm Mauser), and remarkably ergonomic. It used a short recoil, rotating bolt mechanism to operate, and very cleverly had one single spring which did the duties of primary recoil spring, striker spring, trigger spring, and extractor spring. Why it failed to become a commercial success is a question I have not been able to definitively answer - I suspect it must have been due to cost. Edward Ezell theorizes that it was unable to compete with the Borchardt/Luger and Mauser pistols because those were able to be made with much more economy of scale. It is really a shame, because the Schwarzlose 1898 is the best of all the pre-1900 handguns I have encountered.

But SO many people think that Samuel Colt invented the revolver ... (Colts first patents 1835, 1836).

However - Elisha H Collier made a five shot flintlock revolver in 1814 (1818 patent) that worked well by the standards of the day. The cylinder had to be turned by hand and the 'frizzen' contains a reservoir for powder to self-prime the pan.

This was no 'one-off' prototype - more than 10,000 of these were made between 1819 to 1824 by John Evans & Son, London - and widely used by the colonial British forces in India. http://flicense.blogspot.com/2015_05_01_archive.html

  Lorenzoni Repeating Flintlock Pistol https://youtu.be/J_hnC6x036Q
oday we have one of the oldest guns we've looked at, a Lorenzoni repeating flintlock pistol. The system was designed by an Italian gunmaker in Florence name Michele Lorenzoni. They were made in very small numbers, and the workmanship is stunning, especially considering that they were first manufactured in the 1680s.

Instead of using a revolving cylinder pre-loaded with multiple shots, the Lorenzoni system utilizes powder and ball magazines in the frame of the gun and a rotating breechblock much like a powder throw tool used today for reloading ammunition.

Not a revolver but this amazing gun has a powder magazine in the stock above the trigger and another mag. for the balls - the video shows how it worked (six to ten shots) better than I can try explain.

The Stoner 63, also known as the M63, XM22, XM23, XM207 or the Mk 23 Mod 0 machine gun, is an American modular weapons system designed by Eugene Stoner in the early 1960s. Cadillac Gage was the primary manufacturer of the Stoner 63 during its history. The Stoner 63 saw very limited combat use by United States forces during the Vietnam War, including the Navy SEALs and Marine Corps. A few were also sold to law enforcement agencies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoner_63

Stoner 63/63A Light Machine Gun: The LMG configuration fires from an open bolt and is fed from the right-hand side by linked ammunition contained in a 75, 100, 150-round drum magazine. The receiver is identical to the Rifle variants, but is inverted, so that spent cases and links are ejected to the left. The LMG has a quick-change barrel and the gas cylinder is positioned below the barrel since the receiver is inverted. The LMG configuration was adopted for military use by Navy SEAL units operating in Southeast Asia.

Stoner 63/63A Medium Machine Gun: Identical to the LMG configuration. The difference is that the MMG comes with a separate adapter than can be used to attach the weapon to an M2 or M122 tripod.

Stoner 63/63A Rifle: A standard assault rifle fed from below by a 30-round box magazine. Spent cases are ejected to the right. The cocking handle and gas system are mounted above the barrel. Unlike the belt-fed configurations, the Rifle fires from closed bolt. The rifle configuration was field tested by the USMC for a short period during April to June 1964 by a recruit company at MCRD Parris Island, SC and elsewhere in 1967. It was eventually fitted with a lightweight bipod that folded beneath the handguard.

Stoner 63/63A Carbine: The Carbine is similar to the Rifle configuration, but with a shorter barrel and a folding shoulder stock. The carbine configuration was field tested by the USMC for a short period during 1967.

Stoner 63/63A Automatic Rifle: The Automatic Rifle is an open-bolt rifle fed from a top-mounted, 30-round magazine. The front and rear sights are offset to the left to compensate for the magazine's position. The AR does not have a semi-automatic mode. The automatic rifle configuration was field tested by the USMC for a short period during 1967.

The Million Dollar Luger in .45 ACP - Currently Dave and I are writing a sort of followup to the Total Gun Manual entitled “100 Great Guns” and as I have been reacquainting myself with the world’s most famous firearms, I was reminded of the interesting story behind the very rare .45 caliber Luger.

In the movie Wall Street, greedmeister Gordon Gekko brags about owning “the rarest pistol in the world,” and shows off a (prop) .45 caliber Luger. Also known as “the million dollar Luger” the pistol was not merely a product of Oliver Stone’s imagination; it does exist as an interesting footnote to the familiar story of the Army’s adoption of the 1911 as its sidearm.

The Philippine Insurrection and the Army’s own testing — which involved shooting a bunch of live cattle and human cadavers with pistols — determined that the Army’s new sidearm should be of at least .45 caliber, as .38s had failed to make much impression on charging Moro tribesmen.

One of the several pistols submitted for the test was a .45 caliber version of the Luger semiautomatic pistol. The Army had previously purchased 1,000 7.65mm Lugers and a few in 9x19mm (aka 9mm parabellum/Luger), but only two .45 caliber Lugers were specially made up for the Army tests in 1907 by manufacturer DWM.

The Army was interested enough in it to order more for additional testing. By the time they did, DWM turned the Army down, perhaps because they had already signed a contract with the German military. Whatever the reason, that pair of Lugers remain the only two ever made in .45 ACP. The whereabouts of one is unknown. The other was sold for a $1,000,000 in 1989, although when it was auctioned in 2010 it brought “only” $494,500. So it’s really the “almost-half-a-million-dollar Luger,” but it does exist. http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/gun-nuts/2013/03/million-dollar-luger

The Maschinegewehr 34 (MG34), first tested in 1929 and introduced in 1934, is a recoil-operated, air-cooled 7.92x57mm German machine gun. Its design was based on the MG-30, a Rheinmetall design. It is though by many to be the most advanced machine gun in the world at the time it was adopted by the German army, and was deployed in large numbers after Hitler’s repudiation of the Versailles Treaty in 1936. One of the most impressive features of the MG-34 was the combination of light weight (26.7lb) and high rate of fire (800-900 rounds per minute). Its double crescent trigger was another great feature, which allowed either semi-automatic or fully-automatic firing.

The MG-34 was equipped to use a 50 or 75 round drum magazine as well as an ammunition belt, and it could be mounted on a bipod or tripod. During periods of prolonged shooting the barrels had to be changed to avoid misfires, due to heat generated by the rapid rate of fire. Because of this, the MG-34 was designed for rapid barrel changes, requiring only disengaging a latch and swinging the receiver to the right to insert the new barrel.

In spite of all of its features and benefits, high production cost and a slow rate of production for precision engineering, its dissemination through the German forces was limited. During the 1930’s the MG-34 was used as the primary infantry machine gun, and remained the primary tank and aircraft defensive weapon until 1942 when it was replaced by the MG-42.

Imported and copied MG-34’s were used by Chinese Nationalist forces during World War II and the Chinese Civil War. It was also used by the People’s Liberation Army, Korean People’s Army, and the Viet Cong during the Cold War. In all, the MG-34 was used in the Second Sino-Japanese War, World War II, Chinese Civil War, the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Korean War, Portuguese colonial war, Algerian War, Vietnam War, Angolan civil war, and the 2013 Lahad Datu standoff.

File 147578623778.jpg - (1.21MB , 2727x1413 , Czech WW2 ZB53 aka TK vz_ 37, UK Besa & German.jpg )
The ZB-53 was a Czechoslovak machine gun. A versatile weapon, it was used both as a squad support weapon, as a mounted machine gun for tanks and other armoured vehicles, and on fixed positions inside Czechoslovak border fortifications. Adopted before the World War II by the armies of Czechoslovakia (as TK vz. 37) and Romania, it was also license-built in the United Kingdom as the Besa machine gun. Following the Munich Agreement the German Wehrmacht captured large quantities of the weapon and used it during the war under the designation of MG 37(t).

The ZB-53 was designed by Václav Holek and Miroslav Rolčík of the Zbrojovka Brno works as a replacement for the Schwarzlose machine gun of World War I origin. Based on the earlier vz. 35 machine gun, the prototype was tested in 1936 and the following year the new machine gun was adopted by the Czechoslovak Army with the designation TK vz. 37 ("Heavy Machine Gun Mark 1937"). It was introduced as the standard machine gun of Czechoslovak LT-35 and LT-38 tanks. Czechoslovakia exported the gun to Romania, Yugoslavia, Argentina, Afghanistan, Iran and China (roughly 850 pieces used during the Second Sino-Japanese War), while UK bought a license and started to produce its own version, known as the BESA (over 60,000 pieces made). http://www.wikiwand.com/en/ZB-53

The weapon was a gas-operated, belt-fed, air-cooled machine gun that served both the infantry support and vehicle weapons roles. The machine gun was delivered in three variants: infantry machine gun (on heavy tripod), heavy bunker machine gun (with heavier barrel, marked "O") and for armoured vehicles (marked "ÚV"). It was designed to withstand five minutes of constant fire, after which time the barrel had to be changed due to wear. Although modern, the weapon was prone to jamming due to complicated rate of fire selection mechanism.

Czechoslovak Zbrojovka Brno and then Zbrojovka Vsetín produced the gun in large quantities until the 1950s.

Italian WW2 Pavesi prototype rifle, a Soviet SVT copy.
This rifle is pretty much a big mystery – I have virtually no good information on it. Through inspection, we know it is a mechanical copy of the Soviet SVT 38 or 40 – it shares the same exact bolt, locking system, and gas system. Even many aesthetic features like the metal front handguard, muzzle brake, and sights are remarkably similar to those of the SVT. The biggest difference is the magazine, which is a fixed design fed only be stripper clips. The rifle is chambered for the 8x59mm Breda cartridge, and magazine capacity is unknown – probably either 9 or 10 rounds.

The clue that this is a Pavesi rifle comes from the safety lever, which is identical to the safety lever on the Model 1942 Pavesi rifle. The only markings on this piece are two repetitions of the serial number (875), on the receiver and stock. This serial number suggests that a significant number of these rifles may have been made, although I have not seen any other examples, nor any recorded information on when or where they were made, tested, or fielded. http://www.forgottenweapons.com/pavesi-prototype-svt-copy-video/
