Rare Gun ID

A problem, from time to time, is figuring out what exactly is in front of you.

The N. Pieper was one such for me.

I'd never even heard of them when we spotted the gun in the case.

I found exactly one web page with pictures and they had the gun I had labeled as a 1907.

Thanks to C&Rsenal, I know it's really a model 1909.

They even posted a picture of a period ad.

This image of that ad taken from Ian at Forgotten Weapons.
Sure does look like my gun there.

I'd originally thought it was a Model 1907, but that one appears to have the cocking piece farther forward.
