This unusual and little known pistol came my way recently. It's an Argie Ballester Molina that was made under contract for Britain during WWII. The bulk of the contract seems to have been delivered to the Special Operations Executive (SOE) the cloak & dagger folks. The pistol has two serial #'s , an Argie one on the butt and a Brit one on the right frame. The English serial has a "B" prefix. Here are some pics.
