Two hundred bucks! Okay, that *definitely* got my Scottish+German tightwad attention! :-)
I guess I have some homework to do on buying used handguns.
Varmit shot from a .38 special?
Get the Glock Model 19. It is a little smaller than the standard sized Model 17. But it holds 15 rounds and comes in at 21 ounces empty. It is perfect for my hands.
‘those 140 pellets will get someone’s attention’
Marginally better than blanks.
The finish is the weak point.
If that doesn’t bother you, it is a fantastic truck gun or carry gun, and I would stake mylife on its operation.
50 refinished his.
The problem is you have their attention and now they are pissed LoL!
try to find a clean one with 2 mags and a holster for that price.
They can be had.
That was a very diplomatic answer! :)
>> The finish is the weak point. If that doesnt bother you...
It doesn’t. As long as it works.
>> 50 refinished his
... and he did a nice job! What do you want to bet he carries a wallet-size photo? Hey, I would!
50’s CZ is the cream of the crop. I’ve spent a lot of time looking at those guys, and I’ve never seen one that sweet.
Sight are good on this model, better than ordinary milsurplus.
Barrel is polygonal like modern glocks.
Saftey and mag release are ambidextrous.
And its high cap.
Excellent trigger in SA or DA.
I saw one recently. refinished but no fancy grips for 300 somewheres.
It’s the flame job on the mag floorplate that makes the diff ;)
“aight” Thanks to all who stopped by!
Enjoy your holiday time folks!
Y’all, thanks a bunch for the comments and tips. They are very helpful and I have learned a lot from you. Although clearly I have more homework to do.
Good night all, and FRegards
LOL! We're finally going to get concealed carry here in Wisc. Why carry a photo when I can carry the real thing?
I'm just funnin' ya. A lot of us around these parts are waiting for CC -- and that waiting is getting old.
The grips made the diff. Not just looks, but it was like shooting a different gun.
Well, take your time, and do try out those pistols before you buy.
That is the best advice I can give.
Tanks for the thread.
So long, and thanks for all the guns.
I’ve been looking for one at gun shows, shops, and on the interwebs for a while now. I’m determined to add it to my collection. I’m sure I’ll run across one soon, but I got side tracked with that M1 carbine. I just couldn’t pass that up. I’ve taken it to the range twice and it’s a great little rifle. It turns out the guy I bought it from is a member of the private range where I go, he has since given me 3 more mags (now I have 7) and another box of ammo.
I think that’s the same set I have. They work good!
If the Carbine is MilSrp, you can still buy folding zytel stocks for them. With thirty rnd mags and the folding, that may be the best home defense rifle available. There are even hollowpoints and soft point rounds still available for the 30 cal.
I think of mine as a step up from the .357 lever rifle I owned ... those boating accidents right after selling the bulk of most of my weapons sure can devastate a collection.
Cool, that’s good to know.
It’s a great little HD weapon. I’ve got 2 thirty rounders and 5 fifteen rounders. It’s good to go.
I had a friend shoot his non-military M1 and the extractor flew off. He was so disgusted with the rifle he traded it to me for a little .38 snubby. I order Iver Johnson heat treated replacement parts and did a complete rebuild on the bolt, so now it is very reliable and I can pop shotgun shells at 200 yards with the scope ... or could, before that darn boating trip.
I hate boats!! Every time I buy a new firearm, it ends up sinking in some darn boat. Boats are dangerous and very unreliable. I guess I’m a boatmophobe.
