The Steyr M1912 is a semi-automatic pistol developed in 1911 by the Austrian firm Steyr Mannlicher , based on the mechanism of the Roth-Steyr M1907. It was developed for the Austro-Hungarian Army and adopted in 1912 as the M1912. It was in service in a limited capacity for the Wehrmacht until the end of World War II. The Steyr M1912 is usually known as the Steyr-Hahn (Steyr-Hammer). Ostensibly this is because of its external hammer but contemporary designs and indeed earlier Steyr designs also used an external hammer, so this is open to debate. The M1912 was originally chambered for the 9mm Steyr round, but after the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938 the M1912 was taken into Wehrmacht service and about 60,000 were rechambered in 9mm Parabellum and remained in service until the end of the war. - Wikipedia #9mm #9x23 #Ammo_box #Austria #AustroHungary #Bullet #clip #Double_Action #Firearm #FMJ #grip #Gun #Guns #Hahn #Handgun #I_World_War #II_World_War #Krnka #M1912 #magazine #Mannlicher #nazi #NRA #Parabellum #Pistol #Shoot #shot #Steyr #war #Weapon #Weapons #wermacht
