Thursday gun question of the week.

In WWII, there was a handgun that had a very strange quirk. Name the pistol, and the quirk for 10 Gunguy points. And no, the Commander can't get the points.......

Here's a pic. No fair looking at the properties and cheating!



Extra points for explaining how to make the quirk happen!

Well that's the Webley-Fosbury automatic. Blowback operated revolver so it could repeat in single action...

I read about that Nambu a long time ago, so naturally, I can't remember the quirk.

Your Gunguy powers are strong. 10 points to the El for the correct answer, yes, an automatic (semi) revolver.

I'll award 3 GG points for the Name, but you didn't mention the actual model......

Can anyone remember the fictional detective that was killed by a Webley-Fosbery?

Since I have no answers on the Nambu, it is a Type 94. If you look above the safety, that is an exposed sear. If that was pressed hard enough or hit with something, this thing would fire with no pressure at all on the trigger. While fairly reliable, in war it had to be carried without a round in the chamber and on safe, per the orders from the top. So was a bitch to get into battery. Many Nohonjin Officers, since that had to buy their handguns with their own money, opted for European handguns.

Nice finish work on that thing! Jeebus!! Looks like it was made by a 3rd grader with a hacksaw.
