Standard configuration Pieper 1907-C with 2.25in barrel having fixed front and notched rear sight. Blowback design similar to the FN 1900 in having a separate tube for the recoil spring mounted above the barrel. Functions as a single action with a rotating safety mounted on the left side of the frame, the word “FEU” (fire) in an unblued circle ahead of the safety axle. Hard rubber grips with an oval of intertwined NP (Nicolas Pieper) within a finely checkered field. Bottom magazine release. Unmarked magazine with 5 indicator holes and a uniquely extended floorplate.
Unusual Belgian, Pieper Pocket Pistol, 1907-C, C3363, A-1172
95% original rust blue finish with sharp edge wear and a few areas of thinning as one might expect from a lightly carried pistol. Comparable condition grips. Magazine has been sanded on each side, still with a difficult frictional fit. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. One of the most interesting and visually attractive 6.35mm pocket pistols from the turn of the 20th century.
