    Hi Bill, I have always fanicied having one of these.

    I once read, many years ago, in an old issue of "Guns & Ammo" magazine that they found this to be the most accurate of the main WW2 issue sidearms? They put this down to the 8mm round more than anything else, with it's more gentle recoil compared with the 9mm, or .45 auto etc.

    What do you think to that statement? I cannot say, as I have not shot one of these.


    Cheers, Ade.

    I have to agree.. It has natural pointability and the 8mm ctg. is very pleasing to shoot.. I have shot many rounds through the T-14 over the years, and find it to be super accurate...BILL
