Default Bergmann-Bayard Model 1908 9mm Pistol

Here are a few photos of my Bergmann-Bayard 9mm Model 1908 semi-auto pistol serial number 12266 along with German language instruction booklet. This pistol is Belgian-proofed and may have seen service in WWI since many of these pistols were taken into German military service after the German Occupation of Belgium in 1914.

Looks in good shape. Is the caliber the (standard) 9x19 or is it a 9mm Bergmann-Bayard something?

Do you plan on shooting it, just to see how it works and how far we have come? Or not? I always wonder how well the grip, sights and trigger combine on old guns.

9x23 if in the original configuration. Very nice pistol, bro.

Yes, it's chambered in the 9x23mm Bergmann/Largo and I shoot it every now and then and it performs very well for a 100+ years old pistol.

I also have one in EXC condition. Very accurate but very heavy trigger pull. Worth quite a bit these days. Dan Shea has ammo for it that is or was very reasonable.

I took some photos now I just have to find a printer that will take the XD card. All my new equipment for my MacBookPro and Epson printer take only SD memory cards.

Isn't this the same model pistol carried by Christopher Mitchum when he played one of John Wayne's sons in the movie BIG JAKE? I was wrong the gun in BIG JAKE was built off a P-38 frame and called a Bergman 1911 and not a real Bergman-Bayard.

No Wayne had Mauser C-30 7.62X25 "Broom Handle". That is one beautiful handgun. I have been trying to add one to my collection.
