Standard configuration Roth Steyr with 5.25” barrel, drift adjustable front sight (staked) and fixed rear sight. Top of the receiver is marked “WAFFENFABRIK STEYR”. The rear of the frame, under the cocking knob, is unmarked. The serial number 10541, a later addition, is on top of the rib. Major parts are in the white except for the nose cap. The body of the bolt is in-the-white and the trigger is grey case hardened. The forward wedge under the sight, extractor and disconnector (visible on the right frame) are strawed. Fitted with serrated grips secured with a single screw, no disc markings.
M1907 Roth Steyr made in Austria, late assembly, largely with unfinished parts, no proofing or dating.
VG+ original condition. Comparable condition grips with staining and handling mars and a few losses. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. One of the more unusual and complex pistols, this late assembly variation specifically mentioned in the encyclopedic reference text by Moetz and Schuy. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
