Gun of the week

Jul 21st, 2012 | By | Category: Firearms, Spotlight

The Gun of the Week this time around is the very rare Schouboe M1907.  This is an unsuccessful military design that was produced by Denmark from 1907 until 1917.  It is in 11.35 mm Schouboe round, which is not quite .45 caliber.   The weapon features a 6-round magazine and a 5.1 inch barrel.  It was designed by Torring Schouboe, the military officer who also designed the Madsen submachine gun.

The total length of the pistol is 8 inches, and it weighs a tad over 24 ounces with an empty magazine.

This is a blowback pistol, which is very unusual in a pistol with a large bore diameter.  In order to make the pistol manageable in recoil it used a wood core bullet, which proved to be too light to have any effective accuracy or stopping power.  The pistols and ammunition are quite rare now.
