6/20/17 - This is a Dreyse M1907It is all original and matching with a nice bore. The original finish is about 95-97% with some spotting on both sides, as well as patina, but very little actual finish loss. The Dreyse Model 1907 is a semi-automatic pistol designed by Louis Schmeisser. The gun was named after Nikolaus von Dreyse, the designer of the Dreyse Needle Gun. The pistol had an interesting feature for the time: when the gun was ready to fire, the firing pin projected through the back of the breech block, serving as an early handgun-cocking indicator. It was produced from 1907 to 1915. The caliber is 7.65 and was later made in 9mm.
