Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Unknown German pistol

#1 Post by lamontagne0527 » Mon Jan 01, 2018 11:56 pm

My coworker has a pistol that we can't make heads or tails of. We think it's a German pistol that's break action that apparently takes a 17 calibre round (centerfire by the looks of it. Any ideas?

Looks similar to a Buchel Luna Olympic Free Pistol:

Admittedly, it's a bit different, but could be a different design for one year, or could be by another manufacturer. Could even be a sport model sold to the public as an "Olympic" pistol, but I think searching for old German Olympic pistols should set you on the right track.

Just a dumb question how do you think it may be German.. Any markings at all.. What I find amazing about this style of single shot target pistol is how many makes and flavors they made, and how unmarked many are...

Perhaps it's a schuetzen pistol. They use them in German bars similar to the way we throw darts.
Here is a picture of one of the rounds next to a .22LR. It's nothing more than a .177 lead BB over a primer. - Bill
