Unblinking Eye
The Clément Pistols
Belgian Patent 171695

Belgian Patent 171695, filed by Julien Warnant-Créon on 23 July 1903. The springs at the rear to buffer recoil indicate that they were likely having problems with recoil from the light bolt well into 1903. It also seems to indicate that Warnant was working with Clément to try to resolve the issue.
