    I think the basic design was set before 1900 and later changed from 577/450 to accommodate 303 cartridges. Wasn't used for handgun cartridges as handguns weren't really high on the list at that time.

    There is that question, how the 7,7x58 chambered in a 6,5x50 chamber. Also how the 7,62x63 [30-06] fit in the action. Note case length differences. Some parts of the story might be missing.
