    Here's a little Spanish Iron for Bob, a French military contract Ruby.

    HHmm - slide serrations are straight milled, not the curved lathe cuts. The straight mill was a little more time consuming and expensive, most of the Eibar firms abandoned that technique for the lathe cut as French demand increased further into WWI. Looks like early WWI production.

    Interesting, I wondered why several of the other pistols have the curved serrations, never occured to me it was because of cost!

    Here is a Spanish pistol with 12-round magazine. I wonder whether it is a Ruby type manufactured by M. Zylaica or mfanufactured/marketed by B.H. and exported by Japanese company targeting Chinese market.[​IMG]
