The Ruby Plus Ultra high capacity semi automatic pistol,
The Ruby pistol was a Spanish made firearm based off of the FN Model 1903. First produced in 1914, it was unique for its day because its magazine held nine .32 ACP cartridges rather than 6 or 7, which most semi automatic pistols had at the time. The method to increase this capacity was done simply but making the grip and handle longer, thus allowing it to accept a long magazine.
In 1928 Llama took the idea to an incredible extreme by introducing the Ruby Plus Ultra, which utilized a detachable magazine which held 20 rounds. The grip was widened to accommodate a double stack magazine. Furthermore the grip was lengthened even more to accommodate a longer magazine. As a result, the Plus Ultra has a ridiculously long grip. Production was discontinued in 1933 when the pistol failed to achieve significant sales. Often, its long grip made the pistol seem cumbersome and unwieldy.
