Glocks were "off brand" pistols. The first time I heard about Glock pistols was from a buddy (of sorts) at work. He told me about the "newfangled plastic guns" he'd seen at the gunshop. He said they were made "somewhere in Europe and would go thru airport metal detectors."
I have a Bersa Thunder 380 that just shoots and shoots. Can't make it malfunction, and it shoots pretty true, too.
My TISAS 1911A2 is an example of an excellent value in an all-steel 1911. Handsome, too. For now, that one probably takes the title.
1943 Astra A600.
My Dad has a Brazilian INA Tiger which he is rather fond of- thats pretty far off brand.
Kind of like Benelli and 9mm pistols!
@FL-NC here’s my “off brand” favorite:
Mauser M2 cams / lugs with the slickest grease he can find
and exercise the action a zillion times before shootin'.
That's a great collector item! Not many out there? ???
High Standard Supermatic Citation Military (same grip angle as a 1911, or supposed to be). 10 shot .22 LR Bullseye machine with Eley Match or Remington Target.
Titan .25 auto. It has never failed to go bang. And it is purely for fun.
I actually just acquired a correct box and manual for it, for 25 cents!
And the only pistols Savage made for almost 100 years... A pair of Strikers.
Love the Erma, the .32s are a bit rare.
Savage actually made a single-shot cowboy style pistol, the Model 101, in the 60's-
And Savage is off-brand?!?
That was me who posted that ... and that early AMT Hardballer is sitting on the desk next to me .
The Colt Gold Cup and Colt Commander are both gone ... The Harballer was more accurate that either . I never had any problems with my rear sight . I don't know if someone paid this one some extra attention but it has always shot , fed , fired and ejected well . I called the AMT shop about getting another magazine and as an aside the tech told me to lube the sliding parts with Lucas Red-N-Tacky Lithium grease ... not all the galling bugs had been worked out of early stainless steel so do it instead of using oil ... been running fine with that bit of advice .
Yeah ... AMT Hardballer has to be my favorite "Off-Brand" too !
