World’s First Polymer Pistol - TKB-023 (1963) (lemmy.world)

The popular belief is that the first polymer pistol was HK VP-70. It is true and not at the same time. If we are talking about a production model, then yes, HK VP70 is the first one (introduced in 1970).

Duel Magazine MP40/I for Tacticool Reloads (1942) (lemmy.world)

This submachine gun has a distinctive enlarged magazine housing that takes two MP-40 magazines and allows switching between those in a matter of pressing a latch in front of the magwell and sliding the two side by side oriented magazines left or right.

Snaphance Six-Shot Revolver (~1660-70) (lemmy.world)

Technically of Snaphance configuration, but made well into the ‘true’ flintlock era.
