Schouboe Model 1916: The Final Attempt

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

The final iteration of the Danish Schouboe pistol is this, the model 1916. Produced in prototype quantities only, it took the features of the 1910 pattern (safety and external barrel pivot) and made a few more changes. The slide no longer telescopes over the barrel – possibly to add mass and reduce slide velocity? The grip angle has been made very aggressively steel, with checkering on both front and back straps (and on the now-enlarged magazine release).

This example is serial number 366, which comes within the range of known 1910 pattern examples. This raises questions about the production order; perhaps when the new grip style failed to meet a goal the factory went back to the 1910 pattern? Or perhaps additional 1910 type unswore assembled from existing parts right at the end of production? Unless more primary source records come to light, we do not know.
