I had to feed the need, so played in a local auction and won these.. a Savage 1907 and a Remington Model 51. Both have good bores, and matching. The finish is untouched, and both have the original grip panels, not terrible for both being a century old. And, they both functioned flawless, I had too.
The Savage 1907, made from 1907 until 1920, it's a smaller version of the .45 acp handgun Savage submitted to compete and was also the finalist against the 1911. Available in .32acp and .380. This is yet another .32acp in my pile. Two innovations....it's the first US handgun that had a double stack, detachable 10 round mag, and there isn't a single screw in it. And one thing I love is the blueing, in the sun, it's a deep blue finish.
The Remington UMC Model 51.. designed by John Pedersen, the same guy who designed the Pedersen device that converted the M1903 to the autoloading handgun-caliber longarm platform, and worked with John Browning. They can be found in .32acp and .380, this example is the .380 version, there is a Model 53 in 45acp as well, that was built later. Around 65,000 were made between 1918 and 1927. This is where Remington recycled the name for their current redesigned 9mm, the R51.
