Eoka pistol!

The Eoka Pistol.

The Eoka pistol is an unusual pistol made from a rough hewn wooden frame and a spent 20mm calibre cartridge casing as its barrel.  Due to the fact that a cartridge case contains no rifling, the most efficient use of the Eoka is likely to have been to press the muzzle into the victims body.

The pistol shown belonged to a member of EOKA, a group who fought against British and Turkish forces for Cypriot independence during the 1950′s.
