That was the first pistol I ever shot.
Personally, I would love seeing the C96 Broomhandle again.
Or 539 or 439.
Speaking of which, a Springfield Hi Power, -ish repro.
All of Colt's black powder handguns starting with the .44 Walker, all made in the USA of top grade modern steels, the 1860 Colt army is the most undeniable beautiful handgun ever produced, I sent mine back to Colt for their drop dead refinishing blueing absolutely breath taking when I got it back. Unfortunately made in Italy for Colt, doubt they would have refinished it otherwise.
Not me I would buy two of each BP handgun Colt made in my previous post. Would I shoot them ?? Maybe yes, maybe no, but I sure would enjoy owning and admireing the beauty those BP handguns give off plus the history they represent in times long past.
I think Charter Arms tried something like that when they bought the rights to Armalites AR-7. Pretty cool little rig if I recall rightly.
Springfield Armory is producing an excellent clone of it...
Bought an Ideal Handloading Manual at a gun show in Portland, Oregon, it was a second edition cost $0.10 new, but I had to pay the CROOK $20.00 for the manual, cuz the scammer overheard me talking to another person about aquireing 100+ # of early 20th century gun powder from a lady whose husband had recently passed away. However she only asked $20 for all, seems no one else would buy it. I lucked out big time, powder proved to be super accurate in ten different calibers, still have 10# left, but NO primers.
Bought the Colt Diamondback 38speical 4" nib, discription in 2 words--- shoots fantastic.
How very correct you are, handles nicely, mine shoots nigh on 1 hole groups at 100 yards, in my possession 40+ years.
Bought a AMT 45ACP long slide many years ago, would not feed at all, so useing very fine Emery cloth I carefully polished the rails and feed ramp to a mirror shine, BINGO, it now feeds even emptys flawlessly, cheap fix indeed.
With a .4525 throat.
I'm gonna buy one of these so fast it won't even make it to my bucket list, already have .451 through .454 plug gages in the car.
Even in stainless as an option.
Here is my High Standard Sentinel, 9-shot 22 lr I picked up this year (posted previously).
Not the quality of a S&W, but it has a high fun factor.
The cessation of P7-series pistols came about via the perfect storm: Mfg costs/retail pricing + the graying of not only the above-mentioned engineers, but also the machinery, the tooling & the few bench artisans who built them. The bargain-priced P7 window slammed shut in 2012 when the last of the $475 (& up) Oberndorf-inspected/refurbished/upgraded (as needed) German police imports dried up … yea, those were the days.
As far as firearms go, two I’d like to see reintroduced are the Walther PP Super (9x18 Police) & the S&W 1006 … with the ressurgance of the 10mm & with Colt doing what they’re presently doing with their snakes, I’d like to think (hope!) that the notion of a new S&W 1006 might just be in the realm of possibilities???
Not to burst your bubble but it would probably come with a lock.
