Borchardt  C-93 Pistol - early semi-auto pistol




The Borchardt Pistol is the grandfather of the famous German 9mm Luger pistol. It was chambered in a 7.65×25mm Bouchardt caliber, used a toggle action mechanism,  and was produced from 1894 to 1897.


The US Army tested the Borchardt and found it to be acurrate and provided effective firepower of 7 rounds in a row. However, the high unit cost doomed it's adoption.


The factory case contains a spare magazine and a shoulder stock.
