Photo of The Week: Roth-Steyr M1907

The Roth-Steyr Model M1907 was the pride of the Austro-Hungarian Empire when it came to handguns. Approximately 99,000 of these pistols chambered in 8mm Roth-Steyr where produced from 1908-1914 and saw extensive use on the Western Front in World War One. A unique piece of firearms history that I was fortunate enough to see at the National World War One Memorial and Museum in Kansas City.
