"This is the Place where collectors of Classic Target Pistols unite"
22nd November 2014 - Translated an original Dutch article I wrote for our Collectors Club in The Netherlands on th Scharfenberg Target Pistol. Have a look: Scharfenberg Offizierspistole 1893
RARE opportunity -
We are privileged to offer you a copy of the book "Scheibenwaffen - Rear loading systems from 1850 - 1950" written by my fellow collector and friend Josef Albl. It describes the full historic background, including original detailed drawing of patents, and loads of high quality photographs of the various rear loading Target Systems (both rifles and pistols) made between 1850 and 1950. This is a rare opportunity to own one of these prestigious reference books.
The book is meaning to arrive in the Autumn 2014. It is limited to just 300 copies. Only a few left. Order here!
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 dedicated to show you a part of a interesting historical heritage collection and 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...
