    have a chance on a nice .32 with target sights and barrel length.
    anyone ever owned/shot one of these, a couple-3 different basic models.
    seems they were available in .380acp also.?

    Buddy has one in .380. Does not run well, if at all, when dry. Needs to be well lubed. The heal mag release was darn near impossible for me to work. Not sure why. His has the thumbrest. A lot like the PPK in that a lot of shock hits the backstrap and thus was not real pleasant to shoot. Not a real fun gun in .380...that probably won't be a problem in .32.

    Easy enough to take apart if you know what to do.

    While not exactly impressed with the thing, it was intriguing and I'd like another crack at shooting it well lubed.

    Extremely nice looking gun. Not very practical to carry with that long barrel sticking out of a gun that looks otherwise much like a PPK...with the front sight at the end of the barrel instead of atop the slide. Not sure if that's the one you're looking at.
