The Eoka pistol is a crudely made Cypriot pistol.

HistoryEdit

The pistol was made and used around the 1950s. The pistol as seen in the image belonged to a member of EOKA, an organization that fought for the end of British rule in Cyprus.

Design detailsEdit

The pistol is very crudely made; a spent 20mm cartridge serves as the barrel of the weapon. Wire wrapping secures the "barrel" to a roughly carved wooden pistol grip. The pistol lacks a trigger; firing the weapon requires the user to ignite the charge placed in the "barrel" via a hole cut into the top of the cartridge. As the weapon's "barrel" is just a spent 20mm cartridge, it has no rifling whatsoever; this makes the weapon have pathetic accuracy if it were ever fired.

TriviaEdit

  • The Eoka pistol is known for its appearance in the video game Rust.
