1918 Remington Mark 1 Pedersen Device

The Pedersen Device is an attachment developed during World War I for the M1903 Springfield rifle that allowed it to fire a short 0.30 (7.62 mm) caliber intermediate cartridge in semi-automatic mode. This wonder weapon was developed to allow infantry to dramatically increase their rate of fire while on the move, while also allowing the rifle to be used in conventional bolt action mode for long-range fire from the trenches.

This very rare collectors item is up for auction, with a starting bid (or buy now?) of $23000

It does not include a magazine, so you’d have to procure one before you got to use this beauty. I’m sure anyone that would pay $23,000 for this device probably wouldn’t be shooting with it though.

Also you would need one of the super-rare 1903 Springfield rifles with the extra cutout that forms the ejector port for the pistol cartridges.
