    Guys...I have been away for a long time...so appreciate if you do not flame me I have so many , more guns than I need, just not near as many as I want!!

    I saw the other day that a site had Israeli surplus Jericho 941F for sale. Stainless, rated good to very good. My luck, lol...I'll probably get a fair!! None the less, I have wanted one of these for a long time. Israeli police surplus. Anyone have any experience?

    I have a LNIB Jericho 9mm 3.8 "Semi Compact" that came from a pawn shop, and didn't look to be fired. I have a full sized "stainless" (Doubtful, probably "wonder" or satin nickel) coming from Centerfire, where I'm guessing yours is coming from too. Should be here today

    If it's anything close to good condition, it's going to be a great gun. I have 3 other Israeli surplus Tanfoglios, which are close cousins at least of the Jericho.

    Yes man...you are right. They are all Israeli surplus police pistols. Regardless of cosmetics, supposed to be built like a tank.

    I had one, built like a tank yes but a gun that heavy should have been built around the 9mm magnum. Even my M9A3 doesn't feel as heavy as the Jericho, and it's tad heavier. I could never get comfortable with it no matter how I carried it, felt like a lopsided brick.

    Yes. I am certain it will be heavy. I have ordered a belt carry holster for it. Fab Defense.

    I ordered a semi compact one time. Shot ok, but the mag spring was worn out and had to be replaced. Also, the finish was heavily worn. Condition was vastly overstated. Still my favorite looking gun ever.

    but, it was a good shooter, and felt amazing in hand. Hemiram is probably right. It's almost certainly a brushed chrome, rather than stainless gun.

    I got mine yesterday. No pics yet, but I will take some before and after it gets cleaned up. The right grip is falling apart, it's got a cut in it and I think they used grip tape to hold it together and there is residue on the rear and front of the grip frame. It's totally nasty inside, as expected. No pits visible anywhere outside at all, some shiny spots in the nickel, yes nickel, which is fine, I have a bunch of satin and brushed nickel guns, and they seem to hold up very well unless abused. I ordered a recoil spring, a slide stop (Just for a spare, it fits six of my guns) and 2 different grips and screws, the wrap around finger groove ones and the polymer panel ones. The Poly bore looks fine, and the barrel shows no real wear on it on the outside. Slide fit is great almost equal to my Tanfoglio "Mossad" full sized gun. SAO trigger is good, and it appears that for $300, I did pretty well.

    Picture of the one I purchased. Really nice pistol. Does anyone know if they actually made these SA only pistols? Or have these been modified? I cant find much info on the SA.

    I picked one up from Centerfire, about a month ago....fantastic shooter!!!

    Mine is full size, blued steel, and the action is smooth as silk.

    Cosmetics aside, its a straight up CZ-75 copy.

    I've never heard of a factory single action only one. The "Sao" one I bought was a conversion. Somebody drilled a hole through the frame and inserted a pin through it that kept the trigger front resetting all the way. Effectively making the gun Sao.

    And to be clear, the cz75 and the jericho are not the same gun, and I don't believe any of the parts interchange,

    Yes...I can not find any information at all on a SA Jericho. However as you can see from the trigger position in the photo, mine is a SA pistol. It is also marked IMI and not IWI. Obviously an older model.
