Hi everyone. I have inherited a firearm which seems to be a .25cal. On one side it is marked just like this

AUTOMATIC PISTOL CLEMENT'S PATENT
ACIER GARANTI

By the safety the letters are is FIU.

Can anyone shed light on this. What it is? where to get grips and a magazine? Old or new I like all of my firearms in working condition. I am also looking for dissasembly diagrams if at all possible.

that looks very similar exempt this is blued and has a screw up front next to the barrel.

Look a little more closely and I think you will see that the word is "FEU," which means "FIRE" in French.

bheiser,

I am very interested in all Clement pistols, and I hope you'll come back to the forum to tell us more about your gun, which seems to be an early Model 1912. I would be very appreciative if you could share the serial number of your pistol for my research purposes - the 1912 models are not common, and data is sorely lacking in my database. The only confirmed serial I have recorded for this model is 45080.

Any additional information (and photos, dare I hope?) would be great!
