Schwarzlose Model 1908 Blow Forward Pistol

Andreas Schwarzlose was a respected and experienced firearms engineer, most famous for his machine guns which served his country, Germany, so well during the Great War.
Very few pistols were ever made with a blow-forward action, the Schwarzlose is one of only three types known to have existed.

This front mounted grip safety concept appeared decades later in a much modified form as a squeeze cocking device in the Heckler & Koch P7 pistol.
