The Schüler Reform Pistol is a German pistol.

HistoryEdit

The Schüler was created in an attempt to reduce the bulk of revolvers. Very little else is known.

Design DetailsEdit

The Schüler had an exposed hammer, with a very odd shape for a purpose. The magazine held four rounds and was slid through the top of the gun. It had the markings "Breveté" (French for "patented") and "D.R.P 177023" (Deutsches Reichpatent, German for "German Imperial Patent", 177023 is the patent number) etched on it. Because of this, the gun is mistakenly called "Brevete". The "magazine" is rather unique for the fact that it ejects cartridges without the use of an extractor or ejector. When the gun is fired, there is enough gas pressure in the barrel to blow the cartridge out the back of the magazine. The hammer comes into play here, as the cartridge gets deflected off the hammer to make sure hot brass does not hit the shooter's face.

TriviaEdit

  • The Schüler is valued by many collectors, but usually it is found in bad shape. A gun in excellent condition can go for at least $1,800.
