No, not mine. I'm just the photographer.
Never knew they made a 30 carbine handgun that would be pretty neat.What were the results?must of been iffy?Oh, you are SUCH a tease!
Wish I could ID it, but I can't. But I have a feeling I've seen it before. It's not that .30 Carbine thing, is it? No, it looks more like a .22 blowback of some kind....
I'm pretty certain that the accessory was developed around the time that King was bought out by Ricky Gun Sight. You can see a picture of a Woodsman so equipped on page 13 of the May 1956 issue of "Guns Magazine."Very good Snake, but this ain't the Kimball. I have seen a few of those and wouldn't shoot one for anything. They were short lived and are now rare guns.
The Auto Action is a conversion to a Colt Woodsman that replaced the slide with a fixed part with a round bolt inside. I have been told that it was made by King Gun SightCo. in the late 1940s but the only reference I can find is in Sutherland's Book of Colt Firearms which does mention that it has King sights.
The rear sight no longer shuttles back-and-forth during recoil. This is the same reason why High Standard went to bridge mounted rear sights for its competition pistols, and others mounted the rear sight on a rib fixed to the barrel. Of course, the Ruger Mk I didn't have this issue.So what's the supposed advantage of this contraption over the factory slide?
