Savage Model 1907 Pistol Cartridge: .32 ACP Capacity: 10 rnds Length: 6.5" weight: 1.2 lbs

One of the stranger .32 pocket pistols, the Savage 1907 was a false-hammer design with a bullet-powered delayed blowback action. It was also pretty revolutionary for its double stack magazine. We're covering it today thanks to its service in the French Army during WWI.
