The Dead End of the Bergmann Pistols



I'm surprised that this was even tried. The system of having the magazine in front of the grip of pistols was obsolete even as the gun was offered for military trials. With the shoulder-stock, it might have made for a half-assed carbine, but then it would have needed a much larger magazine.

The Danes, for some reason. were fond of the Bergmann design. They used an earlier version and didn't change until after their long-term German visitors left in 1945.

What, if any, relationship is there between the Bergman pistols and the broomhandle mauser?

None that I know of. I dont’t believe that the designers were the same men.
