So, we just did the "oldest revolver" thread- how about your most senior self-loading pistol?
Savage M1907, .32- this one left Utica in 1919.
Oldest to me is a Ruger Mk-II, purchased new in 1987, about three weeks after buying my first handgun, a .357 Magnum revolver and then learning how expensive it was to try to "learn handgunning" with.
Oldest overall by DOM is my Romanian TTC, made in 1958. Aside from a 1943-manufacture Mosin rifle, it's my oldest firearm overall (I do have a Chinese Type 56 SKS that I cannot date.)
Oldest semi-auto would probably be my Baby Browning. Looked it up one time and seem to recall it was made in the mid to late '50s.
I have a Spanish Ruby copy made between 1919 and 1921 and a H&R Self loader made between 1914 and 1924.
Ah, I almost forgot my 1918 Luger, whoops.
Holy Smokes! Forgot my Luger too- 1917!
Colt 1911 made 1918 but later AA refurb.
I know, how do you forget a Luger?
Its been buried at the back of my armory for so long......I need to get it out and shoot the darn thing!
1908 Colt .25 vest pocket pistol
Without pictures this thread is no fun.
We need pictures! Pictures I say!
I'll get pictures when I get home from work.
Oooohhhh, how bout some pics, those are neat guns!
Oh, sorry, 460 beat me to it. Lol.
This old man. 1917.
1954 Colt Woodsman Target Model.
Broomhandle Mauser made in 1897. It has all matching numbers including the wooden holster/shoulder stock. However, it has a worn pitted finish.
Same here, 'cept mine is the FN 1905/6 variety. Dunno when it was actually made though.
Well, my S&W 659 is my oldest, and my first, and still in the collection. Granted, it isn't very "old", but it is getting old, like me, and a one owner firearm!
Mine would be my 9mm Shield, with the Laser sight that I bought a few months ago.
It's the only semi I have anymore.
Luger Double Date 1918/1920
Nice, mine is an Erfurt Double as well, with the added side plate safety (but not the magazine safety.)
On the downside, mine started off as an Artillery Model, but they installed a 4" barrel during the police rework.
That is one hunk of S&W right there!
I once had a 1904 Navy Luger from the 2nd torpedo div.
And a Walther AC-42
Like most of the stuff it got sold when too many offers of lots of cash were too tempting.
