"This is the Place where collectors of Classic Target Pistols unite"
28th April 2016 - Sorry I wasn't here for a while.. but someone (again) has been trying to gain access to my website. This caused a lot of delays and ofcoarse frustration, but its hopefully clean again - and ready to go!
I was very fortunate to be able to take some wonderful photographs from one of Germany's greatest collectors of Classic Target Pistols. Thank you Otto for the wonderful reception, kindness and cooperation you and your wife gave me!
Only recently Otto gave me some of his priced pistols. He had his 90th birthday this month and had to make some tough decisions. Thankfully both he and his wife are still together and continue living in good health in Germany.
Thank you again Otto. You have been very kind and generous!
Taking the photographs and photoshopping (ie. cleaning) them takes me some time. So please be patient.. but enjoy the new series of photos. This month the very elegant: Widmer Mod. 1932
I enjoy collecting and shooting Classic Target Pistols (or Scheibenpistole) in the Netherlands. I have an historical interest in the great variety of systems that were used in these pistols and especially in the people who made them.
This site is not a commercial enterprise but instead is a place dedicated to showing you a part of an interesting historical heritage collection. I will give you an idea of some of the classic target pistols that were made.
The pistols being offered for sale or trade are either a surplus to my own collection or someone else's.
Please contact me if you are interested in obtaining any further information, I would enjoy hearing from you.
The galleries include several photographs of Scheibenpistolen including pistols by Büchel, Scharfenberg, Hämmerli and other good quality examples.
Feel free to have a look around. Perhaps you could add a small article yourself together with some good quality photographs..
I do my best to answer you as soon as I reasonably can, but please bear with me - I could be out target shooting...
