Roth Steyr Model 1907
Date 1910
Calibre 8mm Roth Steyr
Serial No45435
£1,800

The Roth–Steyr M1907 is a semi-automatic pistol issued to Austro-Hungarian forces during World War I.

The pistol was developed by the Czech designer Karel Krnka, working for Georg Roth, based on the earlier Roth Pistol.

After development and tests of several prototypes, the final version of the Roth–Krnka won a contest for an Army pistol in 1906, and was adapted as a standard gun of Austro-Hungarian Army as: Repetierpistole M.7.

Since Roth had no weapon production capabilities, the government bought all the rights and ordered production in the Österreichische Waffenfabriksgesellschaft (OEWG) in Steyr and FEG in Budapest.

Most Roth-Steyrs (including those made in Hungary) carry a 'W-n' military proof mark, applied by the Austrian government arsenal in Wiener-Neustadt, together with the Hapsburg eagle along with the issue, which is 1910 for this pistol

The disc in the right grip has FK 42 unit identification marks which I believe are Field Artillery
