    Not often seen ...little German vest pocket pistols

    Two vest pockets 6.35 that are not often seen. Not for self defense but, have a place in collecting.....at least for me. I like the oddity. I have a collection of fifty and will show some of them? A little different presentation for our Forum. (With the Lignose, you cock it with the trigger guard.)
    Thanks for looking,
    Joe

    Splendid vest pockets. The Germans (and many others) made guns like jewels.

    That Lignose 2A is outstanding.

    Indeed - some of these are 'adult puzzles' and should be owned for the sheer joy of disassembly and reassembly - just to see the machining.

    I owned a Mann 'almost' as nice as this one - it looks odd, but fits the hand quite well and balances nicely - a true 'point and shoot' little defender, since pretty much no one ever wanted to be hit with one.

    They are an interesting gun to collect with many different varieties. All can be attributed to John Browning's 25 ACP / 6.35 Cartridge just like the 32 ACP / 7.65 pistols.

    I too would love to view your collection. Nice detailed photos you took.

    Have long been fascinated with the .25 ACP and the quality vest pocket pistols that chambered it. The cartridge is weenie and I wouldn't choose it for serious self-defense, but I'm intrigued all the same. Have long thought it would be nice to indulge a collecting tangent that gathered in .25 automatics. It would be enjoyable and instructive to see what you have collected.
