Kongsberg M1914


Recommended Posts

Ok Paul R, the pistol, as you may know, belongs to a batch of .45 M1914 that the Norwegians were ordered to manufacture for the Grman occupying forces, in this case my gun was dispatched to the AOK (Armee Oberkommando)-Only on the last 960 pistols the Waffenamt seal was stamped-The pistol was manufactured in Norway since 1914, date in which the signed the license contract with Colt-The last picture shows below the pistol the steel cartridge 22 lr carriers that the Kongsberg 22lr Conversion uses, this is an extremely rare conversion that I got in Switzerland many years ago-The odd thing of the conversion is that the only thing you have to change to shoot the smaller caliber is the barrel. you insert the rounds in the carriers and the pistol shooots them as fast as you can, cycling each round impeccably-

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
