|COMBAT USE: Resistance movements in Europe and Asia|
This stamp-press weapon was dropped to partisans in Southeast Asia, China and Europe as part of the strategy of using small arms to increase their arsenal. Supplied with ten rounds and comic book instructions on how to operate the pistol, partisans were meant to use the single-shot Liberator to kill an enemy soldier and take his superior weapon. With five bullets kept in the butt compartment, the Liberator was loaded by twisting and pulling back the breech block, inserting a cartridge into the breech, and then cocking the striker by closing the breech block. Once fired, the spent cartridge was ejected by opening the breech by pushing a rod or stick down the barrel.
