Gunsamerica is advertising a Korriphilia HSP 701 in 9mm for $6950. Is a Korriphilia considered better than a Ruger? And what the heck is a Korriphilia??

Owning a Korriphilia is just God's way of telling you that you have too much money.

I would just be happy if I could get the grips from that piece!

I don't really see what the big deal is...

Is a Korriphilia considered better than a Ruger?

Oh, and many people consider many guns to be better than Rugers in many ways. :D

I hope it is more accurate than a SIG P-210!

Korriphilia sounds exactly like one of those wonderful fetishes all those crazy people have... (No offense to anyone here... :D)

We got necrophelia, pedophelia, urophelia, and korriphilia! :p :p

So far my entire collection cost less then one of those crazy pistols. What makes it worth that kind of money?? What is so special about it?

What you may not realize is that the hat IS included with your firearm purchase, and all the lettering is all HAND STITCHED.:what:


OK- they are great looking.

Well, didn't American Arms used to sell one of Budischowsky's designs here? The TP-70?

That is a very nice looking pistol. The price tag puts me in mind of a conversation I had with a friend as we were ogling a $15,000 tv. We both agreed that if we bought it we'd have to move in to the box after either of our wives found out what it cost. :uhoh:

To my eye, these pistols look kind of like what you'd expect to get as the result of an unnatural breeding of a Sig 210 with a Whitney Wolverine.

i am open for lessons on this pistol..made by who, accurate, age etc. etc. etc. :confused:

Is that a 1911 clone?!

Island Beretta, I am going solely on memory here (and could even be thinking on an entirely different pistol), but IIRC from some reading I did many moons ago on these pistols, the design is delayed-blowback operation using roller-locking like the HK P9S, except it uses only one roller (compared to the P9S' two). Hence, a fixed barrel which allows the recoil spring around the barrel and the narrow slide profile. Unlike the rollers in an P9S which are on the left and right sides of the breach and engage a barrel extension, the Korriphila roller sits at the underside of the breach and engages the frame. I'm not clear on all the details, but I seem to recall this being the basic idea.

If I am wrong, someone please correct me. (for I. Beretta's sake, and my own).

See the European Patent Office (http://www.espacenet.com/), Edgar Budischowsky's Patent No. DE2822914 (http://v3.espacenet.com/textdraw?DB=EPODOC&IDX=DE2822914&QPN=DE2822914).

Mr. Zeleny, I'm curious whether your reading of the patent concurs with my interpretation/explanation of the design?

Michael Zeleny

As far as I can tell, Budischowsky's roller locked delayed blowback self-loading action patent distinguishes itself from the CETME/HK design by momentarily locking the breech block to the grip frame.

just 1600 Euro; that is, i believe, about 1,900 USD... :cool:

BluesBear

WOW, that's a good looking pistol Max.
And I'm only 1595 euros short. ;)

What caliber is that?
Does anyone import a plain Jane version into the USA since the Nortons are long gone?

June 22, 2004, 08:10 AM
this is 6.35mm Browning AKA .25ACP

the same European site sells stainless Korriphila TP 70, USA-Ausf├╝hrung for 480 Euro (i believe that's $600 or so)

Thanks Max,
That's the one I remember!

I had a buddy on the County Police back home that carried one of those as a backup gun loaded with Winchester expanding point ammo.

It was wicked reliable and more than accurate enough for up close and personal.

Those are mighty ugly guns, especially for $6k.

I'll take a 1911A1 any day over that.

Sounds like it's for crazy rich people. LOL

The TP-70 is too small to be imported under the 1968 GCA. The NORARMCO specimen shown above was manufactured in the U.S. under license.

I gotta agree with Trigger.

I think they're all kinda ugly...:scrutiny:
