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

    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

    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.

    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).
