Warwinck Copy of the Savage Automatic Pistol

The Eibar region of Spain is known as the center of a lot of pistol production from WWI through the Spanish Civil War, typically pistols called Ruby clones. Well, the various small gunmakers there were looking to copy more than just the Ruby. They duplicated a number of American and European revolvers, and on occasion other guns: like this copy of the Savage automatic pistol.

It’s not a mechanical copy of a Savage, as the internals are the same simple blowback as the Ruby (instead of the semi-locked rotating barrel system developed by Savage). But the exterior shape is obviously intended to pass for a Savage. Note in particular the slide serrations, barrel jacket, and safety lever.
