The Sedgley OSS .38 glove pistol is a World War II firearm. It was manufactured by Sedgley, Philadelphia for the U.S. Marines and the U.S. Navy as a last-resort weapon.


The Sedgley OSS is a single shot, break action .38 Special pistol which was designed by the Naval Intelligence Office. It was meant as a covert operations and assassination weapon. It was mounted on the back of a cowhide glove; the gun would be usually worn along with a long-sleeved coat to hide the weapon until it was used. Due to its appearance, it was commonly nicknamed "Glove Pistol" or "Glove Gun".

The trigger is a bar parallel to and extending past the barrel. After being loaded and cocked, the weapon is fired by pressing the trigger against the target's body.

In Inglourious BasterdsEdit


The gun was used by Donny Donowitz and Omar Ulmer, when they killed the two guards from Hitler and Goebbels's opera box.
