Anybody got a clue on this one . It is marked (automatic pistol republic patent) Looks like 32 acp and has a turn out barrell takedown like a baby browning. Only other markings are SN#39369 Thanks c

I believe a number of companies made this model. Paramount, EU, Eibar, & later Astra (which I believe bought out EU) I think they were made from around 1900 thru WW2. Is the bottom of the mag marked?

Spanish made pistol, made between 1918 and 1923 based on type of pistol grip material, and lack of proof marks implemented by the Eibar proof house in 1923. The "Republic" name was used by several Spanish manufacturers during this period.

A lot of weapons were used in WWII that were not officially adopted by the Germans or other entities.
