Hi naxos,
Sorry, I disagree. I think the slide is way forward on the frame. If you, in your mind's eye, move it back until the serial numbers line up it is a very different looking weapon. I think it has been very badly displayed in a mid strip-down formNot wanting to be controversial, just my thoughts,
Kerry.

Sorry, a bit crude and maybe a tad too far back, but I think you will get the idea. On full recoil the ejection port should be right above the magazine?

There isn't clearance for the bolt to retract far enough back to pick up a cartridge from the magazine.

If it even fires you would probably have to single load it, one cartridge at the time dropped in the chamber. Just made to look like something else.

Johnny, you are correct. A Chinese handmade single shot made to look like a cross between a Luger and C-96

Just looked at the Forgotten Weapons item on youtube, one of the Chinese pistols featured is indeed very similar. It is magazine fed, but very rudimentary, whether it would function in semi-auto, either safely or at all, is moot, but it certainly would feed from the magazine. The gun was sold later at a Rock Island sale.

Look at the relation of the bolt to the magazine to the chamber/ejection port. The bolt would have to strip the cartridge from the magazine under the rear sight. What type of feed ramp would align the cartridge with the chamber, and not have the cartridge ejected as it passed the ejection port?

You disagreeing with me is irrelevant - this gun can not work

Johnny Peppers is right

Nice, the last pistol looks somewhat similar.
