This is Roth Steyr used by the Austrian Cavalry. Interesting fact is the horseman was issued three of these.... two attached to the horse and one on his chest. A very well built and machined pistol and "heavy too."You had to pull "in one motion" the trigger twice to fire it and almost to say...."Do I want to shoot that soldier"If yes, one more pull. This was also made in Hungarian factories too. The condition is a good 98%.
Thanks for looking, Joe

There was an interesting article in The American Rifleman recently about these early automatic pistols.
