Provenance: We are kindly informed that this was the first example of a Boss type round-bar self-opening gun produced by Hartmann & Weiss and it was made as an exhibition gun.

The article in the magazine features an in-depth article on Hartmann & Weiss past and present and offers an insight into both their idealology and methodology in producing some of the most exquisite firearms available today. Click HERE to view the article.
Other Notes: For a short period in the 1930's, Boss & Co. introduced a full self-opening gun to complement their existing assisted opening version. Only fifty six were produced between 1933 and 1937 (with two recorded as having been finished from Pre-War stock in 1946).
