Salvator-Dormus, The first semi-auto pistol

Ian shows a pistol that was patened in 1891. This would beat Schönberger-Laumann 1892 as the first semi-auto pistol. The commercial sales(regardless of success) would make this the first non-prototype pistol.

The first commercial success goes to Borchardt C-93.(1894)
