Post an Unusual or Rare Firearm or Ammo Image. Something many may not know about or see regularly. It doesn't have to be old or antique, just something you don't usually see.

Bonus points for a little history on it.


Here is a softball one to get started:

Sabot 30-06 Accelerator rounds;



At 55grn, they are supposed to hit a muzzle velocity around 4080 fps, and still pack 2033 ft. lbs.

Danish m/49 Service Pistol



which is the Danish version of the Swiss Model of 1949 Service Pistol, which we all know as the P210.

The Danes needed a new pistol for their military and police units, and wisely decided that buying the best pistol available in Europe at the time made more sense than designing and manufacturing their own. A quick agreement with SIG was inked, and the m/49 entered service in Denmark in, you guessed it, 1949. The pistol was so successful that the Danes still have some of them in service today.

This particular m/49 entered my collection yesterday.

This is a Nambu, correct? This is the direction I'm hoping someone like Ruger, etc., will go. The MRDS equipped handgun trend would greatly benefit from a non-reciprocating handgun receiver assembly.

ETA: LOL. Just seen the answer to my question in the quoted link description.

I don't have anything super rare. The closest thing I have is an early war (1941 IIRC) Nagoya Type 99.

Not terribly uncommon, but this one is complete with mum, dust cover, AA sights, monopod, etc.

Pretty unusual to find them intact.

Chicago Protector palm pistol, one of my grail guns I'd love to have someday. 

Designed and produced in France in 1882, and later produced in the US under Chicago firearms in 1883. 




The Gaulois palm pistol. 8mm rimfire, 5 rounds. 
Produced by Manufrance in the 1890's

Very few of these survive. There are less than 300 of them in the entire US, and probably less than a couple thousand left anywhere in the world, out of a total production of 70,000.

ETA: They're so uncommon that the Wikipedia entry for them has a picture of the Syrian version, not the actual French service rifle.

The Sedgley OSS is a single shot, break action, smoothbore .38 Special pistol which was designed by Stanley M. Haight for the Naval Intelligence Office. It was meant as a covert operations and assassination weapon in the Pacific Theater. It was mounted on the back of a cowhide glove; the gun would be usually worn along with a long-sleeved coat to hide the weapon until it was used. Due to its appearance, it was commonly nicknamed "Glove Pistol" or "Glove Gun".[3]

The trigger is a bar parallel to and extending past the barrel. After being loaded and cocked, the weapon is fired by the shooter making a fist and pressing the trigger against the target's body.[4] Between 52 and 200 are believed to have been manufactured. Each Sedgley was issued only as one glove and as not a pair.[5]

MAB PA-15

The first pistol with internal/traditional 15 round capacity, beating out the BHP.

This example has no import marks or country mark.  It may have been one of the few pre-68 imports.

Well now I know what I had. Traded a guy for one when I was a kid that had a locked bolt for some reason. We never could get it open. I just thought it looked cool. I'd use it to sneak into the vacant lot next to my house at night and lob bottle rockets over the canal and under my buddy's carport. Good times. I don't know whatever happened to it.
