I saw a small .22lr pistol at the gunshow that really impressed me. It was a well made .22 in great shape. It had nice blueing and felt great in my hand. The price was $235 but I didn't know anything about them so I decided to pass on it until I could find some more info. I looked it up in my Fjestad and it seems to be the model L. It had the 3.3" bbl and the plastic grips like the description.

Anyone ever own or shoot this little pistol? I have a soft spot for small/medium .22lr pistols because they are so fun to shoot. I really like .22s that look like their bigger cal brother. I have Bersa 23 in .22lr that is just like the .380 bersa and I love it.

The book says one in 98% is worth $200. Is $235 a good deal for one? Are spare parts out there? I didn't buy it because I have never seen any spare mags for it and felt that I would cost a fortune to get a few spares. Also where do you go if it breaks? Is there any warrenty that still covers these guns?

No warranty unless the seller gives you one . Parts / magazines will be very tough to locate .

If it works , I think $150 would be reasonable .

I was thinking the same thing. I would have paid $150 for it since I just plain wanted it and thought it was well made gun but $235 is getting steep. If I didn't like it, it would be very hard to get anywhere near that amount from it if I decided to sell it. That is how I tend to judge how much I will pay for a gun. If I feel that I could sell it for what I paid or more and I want it, I tend to get it. If I really want it, I will pay more than what I could sell it for. I am not saying that I look to sell every gun I buy, just that is a good way to tell if you are getting a good deal or not. I tend to buy only guns that I want to keep now. I still buy a few to try them out but I am getting to the point where I know what I like and what I want to have around for the long haul.

That's a sensible buying strategy .
But , sometimes you see something unusual that just begs to be purchased even at full price . :)
