Cool Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.forgottenweapons.com
The Lahti L-35 pistol was adopted by the Finnish military with the intention of it replacing the Luger, although production was never great enough to accomplish that goal. Early in its production, a couple of special target models were made for field shooting use, and this is one of them (serial number 052). It has a much longer barrel than normal, extended sight radius (your choice of aperture or open notch sights), and a detachable buttstock with a very interesting design of bipod. A door in the side of the stock allows storage of spare sight parts, cleaning gear, and a spare magazine. Truly a unique pistol – thanks to Sako for giving me access to film this example from their factory museum!

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
