Recommended Posts

:)Hi Gents

My Grandmother bought this small Pistol (about 1915) in her Tobacco Shop

It's a Spanish made "Radium" Cal.6,35 Pistol,unusual since a Grip panel has

to be pulled down to open the Magazin.any more INFO very appreciated her

Brother tried shooting it - worked fine (so she told me)

Thanks & Regards Jurgen

Hello , The pistol was manufactured by Gabilondo & Urresti . a Spanish manufacture which starts in 1904 . in 1913 Gabilondo starts with the semiautomatic pistols the first model was the Radium in 6.35 mm and without detachable magazine ,you must open one of the sides of the grip . In 1914 Gabilondo patterbed a new pistol the Ruby in 7.65 mm . the Ruby was sold in large quantities to France . during WW1
