The Borchardt C-93 is a semi-automatic pistol developed by Hugo Borchardt in 1893. It is one of the first mass produced semi-automatic pistols, with 3000 being manufactured over a 9 year period, and was tested by various armed forces soon after its introduction, including the US Army, Navy and the Swiss Military.
Despite this, the weapon was never adopted as standard by any power due to its production costs and unwieldy design. Nevertheless, the weapon was influential; the 7.65x25mm round used by the weapon served as the basis of the cartridge developed for the C96 Mauser pistol, while Borchardt's protégé, Georg Luger, went on to design the more commercially successful Luger pistol using the same toggle-lock mechanism used by the C-93.
