    Default Vitali 1910 experimental service pistol.

    I was looking through a 1962 Guns & Ammo magazine I bought, reading an article entitled "What's Your Souvenir Pistol Worth". Nambu's $10, Lugers $45, Steyr Hahn $15. In amongst the Nambus and Lugers from the collection of a gentleman named Averil M. Hanna, is a curious looking pistol which is described as a Vitali experimental service pistol, caliber 9mm Glisenti, circa 1910. It is a strange looking thing, rather reminiscent of a hammerless Broomhandle, but with the addition of a double action trigger. Magazine looks like it is in front of the trigger guard a'la the Broomhandle, but I can not tell for sure. Article says only one is known, and that this one is serial number 6. 1962 value, "$200 or whatever a collector will pay". Anyone have any further information on this...., like where's the magazine? What is it's capacity? Wish I had a scanner, I'd upload the pix.

    Here's a picture. Please excuse my ineptitude with the scanner and picture cropping.

    Default Pistola Vitali Mod 1905 7.65 Experimental

    Here is another set of photographs and drawings of an early Italian double action autoloader from another forum. Marked in 7.65 caliber, a bottle necked 7.65. 7.65 Luger or Glisenti?
