    Well, a buddy of mine took this in on trade at a local shop where he works. It was traded straight across for a Glock 23.......somebody got a raw deal!

    Anyway, it has some honest carry wear, but that's ok. It has had the sights done, as well as a Bar-Sto barrel added. I have no idea what else, It's pretty tight. 111 rounds through it total. The person is a local jeweler who carried it in the small of his back when conducting business, so that's why so much wear.

    That's pretty sharp. Did you get it for the price of a glock?

    Nice. The frame's been refinished and the trigger isn't original. It was probably made about 1980 or so.

    Well, that's a strange story. I "bought" it for $600, sort of. That was the price on it. But, I gave $50 for it and traded a Sig P226 I bought 2 weeks ago for $400 for the remaining balance. So, I have $450 in it.

    That is a sweet gun for sure.

    I would really like one of those in 9x23 winchester.

    I agree, I would have traded a Sig 226 or a Glock 23 for that without a doubt :)
