1875 Apache Brass Knuckle Knife Gun
« on: Apr 04, 2011, 11:39:24 PM »
Called the "French Apache" or "Apache Knuckleduster", these were made in Belgium by Lambert Dolne in the 1870's and are considered to be one of the most unique pocket pistols ever made.
This one fires 7mm pinfire cartridges which went out of style in the late 1800's.

Other calibers were also made including some that could shoot rimfire cartridges. It's double action and can fire 6 shots as fast as you can pull the trigger. The locking blade is double edged and wavy. Probably less than 7,000 were ever produced.

This handgun gets its name from a notorious French street gang called the Apaches who were known to have used these in the late 1800's.

I would love to have a replica just for the novelty.  But alas this is one that will probably never get reproduced.
