    Ten rounds quick! Headed to the range today.

    That was the marketing slogan for the Savage 1907. It was the first successful high capacity double stack semi-automatic, decades before the FN P-35 HiPower. It was available in 32acp or 380 and the magazine held 10 32s or 9 380s. Mine is a 32acp version and I normally carry it 10 + 1.


    What looks like a hammer spur is actually a manual cocking device for the striker.






    It has a window as a loaded chamber indicator.



    The magazine release is a push type at the front of the grip heel and unlike European semis of the period the magazines drop free.



    The slide rides in the frame and the safety (also is used to lock the slide back) is frame mounted. There is no "decock".



    My pistol was made in 1913 (Savage sold lots of the 1907s to France for use in WWI) but is a US version yet may well have gone "Over There" with one of the Yanks.

    Well the gun did great but I had a magazine rupture. Tapped a new magazine to seat the cartridges and it threw all ten rounds down range. Gonna need some surgery on the lips before it gets to go play again.

    That isn't a pistol. That is a piece of Americana.

    That is one of the coolest pistols...or any handgun that I've seen. Are new magazines unobtainable?

    Sorry to hear about the magazine problem, but that is a sharp little pistol! Now I have to go to HEB, I want some Topo Chico!

    That is a great old pistol!

    Sorry to read of the magazine issue. I suppose finding them is like finding chicken teeth.

    It is a new magazine. No problems with the over 100 year old magazine.
