    Great gun! A pile of fun too.

    I gave it a quick squirt of SLIP 2000 EWL before firing, it ran great after a couple of mags. (I am assuming the plastic frame/shroud needed some burnishing with the internal slide). CINCHOME enjoyed it as well.

    Pics! I love those guns. Passed on one at a gun show about a year back and have regretted it ever since. Haven't seen one ever since, either.

    I love the looks of that gun,,,

    I love the looks of that gun,,,
    But as much as I'm intrigued by it,,,
    I'm not buying one until I can test fire one.

    It just screams at my inner Buck Rogers,,,
    Have you tried to buy an extra magazine or two?

    I was told by an owner in another forum that they are virtually non-existant.

    Anyways keep us updated on it's performance,,,
    You have put the bug back into my mind.

    Have had my Oly Whitney Wolverine for several years now. Lots of misfeeds until I worked on the magazine lips just a little. Now it runs flawlessly. Really comfortable in my hand, too.

    Sadly, the "new" wolverine turned out about as well and the "new" thunderbird. A pale shadow of the original. Their relaibility is poor, and frankly they look like a water pistol.

    I see these on on-line auctions (not ones like gunbroker) about once every 3 months. There happen to be two upcoming auctions from Rock Island Auctions on Feb 15th and 17th that have them for sale. The one on the 15th has one and the one on the 17th has 2 in the same lot for sale.

    For example: https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=62076#3463 go to lot 3463

    No, not pissing on anyone's cherrios, just stating our opinion. Some folks just get upset when we are right and they are wrong.:neener:

    I have an "original" and want to make one suggestion. If you decide to disassemble that pistol, take it step by step and make sure you know EXACTLY how EVERY part comes out. They are not easy to put back together and can give lots of problems if assembled wrong. (I don't know anything about the new ones, only seeing a few.)

    Here's my solution to the Wolverine. I would love to have one, and may at some point. I have always liked the futuristic look of the Wolverine, and that inspired me to buy my Neos.

    Glad you like the Wolverine. Hope you get years of fun out of it, with no problems. I gave my pristine, 3rd gen Woodsman to my youngest son last Fri. Lucked up and found a new Ruger Mark III, 22/45 with threaded barrel the next day.

    Got to admit, I'm truly impressed with the Ruger. Paid for a can for it this morning. Be nice to get the can in a few months. ;) Yep, those are original 70 Series GC grips! :p

    I had the real thing 40-50 years ago and traded it away. Kinda regret that now.
