Mannlicher 1901 Carbine Video

The Mannlicher was one of the early automatic pistol designs, and like most such guns, a small number were made as carbine variants. This particular one is the first prototype 1901 carbine (you can see the number ‘1’ stamped on the bolt). I’m not really sure what the best practical use of this little carbine is (it’s chambered for 9mm Mannlicher, which is roughly equal to the .32ACP in power), but it sure is cute and handy.

We also have a German 1901 Mannlicher Carbine manual available, as well as some photos of a Mannlicher pistol.
