A final version of the M1901-vintage design, this was an improvement of the M1906 with a new grip safety in the back strap of the butt. Although production of the M1906 and M1910 Frommers lasted until the beginning of WW1, less than 10,000 were made. It was most widely used by the Magyar Csendőrség (Hungarian Gendarmerie)
Two years later in 1912 Frommer submitted his most succesful pistol design, the Frommer Stop.
