I Need A Monicle, Possibly A Tophat...

I think these came in two calibres - 9mm and I think the other was 7.65 Mauser
or something like that.
I'd love to reload for something like that. Wonder how it'd fare
with hard cast lead boolits?


  1. Charter Arms made a .22 pistol some years ago that was the spitting image of a broomhandle.
    I sold it, proving once again the truth that there are some guns I regretted buying, but every gun I've sold I regretted selling.
    And a cup of tea to go with the monicle and tophat.

  2. I've shot one that is owned by a good friend of mine. It needs red hot loads and a very firm grip to get it to cycle reliably. One of its best features is the appearance; the other is the wooden holster that doubles as a stock, which is much more useful than you might think.

    Yes, it's cool looking. The design is no longer made, which should tell you something.
