11.2 Ounces Of Steel And Bakelite

A vest pocket type .25 ACP from Bernardelli Gardone Val Trompia, Italy.


Made in 1952, and you can see the idea of a +2 magazine isn't anything new.  This one holds 8 rounds, the standard one (assembled correctly) holds 6.  I don't have a standard one.

It's kind of a cross between a Browning Vest Pocket and a Walther Number 9 in how things work.  There's also the obligatory magazine disconnect, no Euro gun is complete without that!


Yes, that heel-latch is as hard to get to as you think it might be.


But at least the cocking indicator is sharp enough to be used as a scratch-awl!
