    Default A couple of cheap pistols

    A couple of cheap pistols I picked up from the arms fair last Sunday. Both missing their ejector rods, and both have issues with the mechanism. The largest pistol needs a new trigger return spring, but the smaller pistol has a multiple of faults with the mechanism. But that aside, they display rather well, and look far better than they did when I first got them.

    So Harry,
    What caliber would those be in?

    Thank goodness they are more of a collectible than a shooter. Over here across the pond depending on what caliber, the ammo is going for some serious cash. .50 BMG is cheaper!

    Hi Phil,
    Both are in 7mm pin fire. The largest of the two pistols measures just over 195mm, with a barrel length of 85mm. The smaller pistol has a barrel length of 62mm. It is still possible to pick these guns up relatively cheap over here, although prices do seem to be on the increase now. I asked the dealer if I could look at them, and before I had a chance to make an offer for the two, he offered them to me for considerably less than I was willing to pay!

    Cheers,
    Steve.
