Interesting page on early 20th century handguns
Over at The Unblinking Eye. It covers Walthers, the 1908 Bayard, the Browning 1910 and its imitators, not to mention grips, holstermaking, etc.
On a board I frequent, a soldier posted a pic of an old German pistol he found in an arms cache in Iraq. It was a well-worn Borchardt, of all things.

You have to wonder what they were doing for ammo for that thing. Old 7.62 x 25 Tokorev ?
