A change of pace

How about something a little different? Spanish pinfire pistol, made in Oviedo in 1866. That grip may look odd to modern eyes, but I happen to like the way this pistol feels.

It's also missing the pushrod for clearing the cylinder. But it was under $100, too.


Nice find!
"Ergonomics" may be modern but making something fit the hand has been around for a long time. Every time I handle an M.1895 (the Nagant revolver) I'm amazed at just how good it feels to hold.
