BORCHARDT - Model 1893 - Ludwig Lowe Mfg. - Cased With Accessories
|A "key" historical firearm.
The Luger's direct ancestor, the Borchardt C/93 self-loading pistol was, one of the very earliest viable semiautomatic pistols available in any quantity. It was designed by Hugo Borchardt while in the employ of Ludwig Loewe & Co, Karlsruhe, Germany. Borchardt developed the C 93 pistol for Ludwig Loewe in Karlsruhe in 1893. It was based on Hyram Maxim´s 1884 machine gun patent and on Winchester´s toggle action on their lever-action carbine.
Only 3000 Borchardt pistols were produced – with only the first 1104 being manufactured by Ludwig Loewe.
This set includes the stock, cheek piece, and two magazines – one with no spring or follower, all numbered to the gun. Also included are a hold open/cleaning tool and case.
The firearm is in excellent original condition, but the case is a little the worse for wear. Not bad for 115 years young.
