"That is rare. Rare that you aren't forever searching for Ultra ammo! Big Grin"
So true! I think they only made about 1,000 .380 ACP models just for US imports.
"Cedat Fortuna Peritis"
17-6, full lug, partridge sights & combat grips; as it came from the factory in 1989.
66-3 3" with smooth Nill-Griffe carry grips
FN Herstal FiveseveN Indivdual Officer's Model (IOM) that I had done as a Battlestar Galactica tribute. Sacrilege, I know, but intended to thumb my nose at the FN collectors that drove the prices up on these to $4k at one point.
S&W 2206-TGT w/ Nill-Griffe target stocks / S&W 622-VR with factory thumbrest walnut stocks
Best I could do now is an HK Elite in 45.
Previously I've owned a S&W 610 3" with target sights-custom wood grip, and trigger job so sweet. It was 1 of 300 from Lew Horton order in the 90's. Also had a Spanish copy of a webbley .455 made in 1917 or so.
I so regret selling the 610 but I was moving overseas at the time for an indefinite period.
I did not know that about the mags... thank you for that knowledge!
May I ask... what was the defect? I'm not aware of anything being wrong with mine, but I'm still curious.

wow, really? So, $775 for it plus the $40 I snagged the grips on eBay for was a sweet deal, eh? :-D
great guns but not that uncommon. Here's the first one I bought; the second is at CCR for a CPII Dusk finish right now. The Beretta 81 is 13+1

sounds fair to me
most 3" guns with rubber grips are going for quite a bit more. I was happy to get a sweet gun without overpaying
I want that 17. The full lug barrels look so much better to me.
A Perpetual Disappointment...
Only handgun I have that fits here would be my S&W 1950 .44 special with 6 1/2 inch barrel. It was made in 1955.
|I started with nothing,|
and still have most of it
Since 3" M66 are popular in this thread, here's one I found at Greentops in Richmond, VA a few years ago...
And here's another one I bought at an estate auction in PA and got shipped back to FFL in NC...

I had the stainless Colt .22. It is a good functioning little pistol. Mine sold to a Police Officer who went to Iraq to train other Officers. Thats a good little gun.
Not too common:

“Without its tough spearmen, Hellenic culture would have had nothing to give the world. It would not have lasted long enough. When Greek culture became so sophisticated that its common men would no longer fight to the death, as at Thermopylae, but became devious and clever, a horde of Roman farm boys overran them.”

I have the one of one prototype Performance Center 45CQB that was on the cover of the 2001 American Handgunner article on same.
I also have a 3 inch 66-4, non ported - one of 551 made.
A stainless PC 45CQB - one of 91 made.
And I had, but sold a PC 14-6 4 inch full lug barrel 38. One of 131 made as awards for the annual PPC championships in Picayune MS in 1996 and 1997.
Also had one of the blackened stainless 686-3 Midnight black guns. With a 4 inch tube. Regards 18DAI
Blue lives matter.
I have a a Colt 1911 that I read is a precurser to the series 70. The serial number is followed by ”BB” which stands for barrel bushing. It has been factory accurized. Very accurate. It has the standard lettering used before the series 70 lettering. My understanding is that less than 1000 of these transition models were made before Colt began labeling them with the “Series 70” lettering.
