This is a gorgeous pistol. All the bluing has turned a stunning plum.

Range report this weekend!
Now to find a vintage holster for it!

The slide and action is every bit as smooth and clickety as a Smith Model 41!!

It's nothing like the Buckmark.

that is the first pistol I ever bought, way back in 74 or 75, still shoots great!! make sure the screw on the back holding the sights down is tight, has a tendency to loosen up.
That plum color contrasts so well with the grips.... very nice gun you bought!!

Nice guns. I've owned the Challenger I, II, and III at one time or another. I still have a I that my father purchased new years ago.

Well I can certainly see where the DNA for my Buck Mark Hunter evolved from. Nicely done.

Recently a dealer had one of these as part of a P.D. evidence batch of firearms for auction. I bid to the point that i said "Nah, dont need another .22 sitting in the safe at that price"
