    New Gun Frustrations...the lack of them!!

    It's funny but I've been trying to find/buy a Springfield GI Champion and a Kahr P380 with night sights but with no luck. Can't even find em on Gunbroker or Guns Amercia. I know the P380 with night sights is very new but it seems like manufacturers must be running 24/7 to capitalize on this market, but it seem like it's SO hard to find certain guns!!

    I found exactly one 4" Springfield Champion GI series on an action site but it was easily $100 over any kind of reasonable price.

    So it's frustrating to be ready to buy but not able to find them. Even my main guy can't get them. He did get a P380 in with night sights but it was already spoken for!!

    So if you see a GI 4" Champion all steel 1911 in .45 ACP out there, or a P380 with night sights, please let me know.

    jeeeezzzz!

    It is called a "sellers market". Demand goes up, supply goes down - guess what happens to price!

    I wish you luck in your search.

    I've never seen the Kahr P380 with night sights either. I simply bought the standard P380 and added the Crimson Trace LG-433.

    GI springfields

    I worked selling guns from 2006 to about 2008. GI springfields were hard to get back then and from my FFL friends in the biz state they are still hard to get. After a recent talk with Springfield most of these guns are already allocated from the factory and at the distributors. Go to your FFL and see if they can put you on a list.

    I understand your frustration. Been looking for a 3 inch k frame for a while. No luck at last 2 gun shows. Another gun show near me this weekend, so hopefully luck will break for both of us.

    Well I can see I'm not alone. I did wait almost a year to buy a Marlin 1894C in .357. My dealer couldn't get one and I kept waiting. One finally showed up on Bud's Guns for $487 shipped. Couldn't believe it but jumped on it.

    Well, I'm going to be patient I guess and just wait!


    At least I know I have company! :)

    I was on a waiting list at my big market local gun store for months for a P380. One day when I was returning home from a family party in the next county over I stopped into a family owned gun/hunting/outdoor store to see if they had some cheap range ammo when I discovered they had 1 Kahr P380 with night sights. The guy working the counter said it was the only one they got in and the only one they planned on getting in. Talk about perfect timing.
    The big market gun store STILL does not have them in stock.

    Dear Fellow OCD Member,
    I went through the same thing while preparing for my CCW course. The shelves were virtually empty and there was talk of long delays and higher prices! Well, the supplies finally returned (sorta) while the latter became to be, and they are still climbing at a phenomenal rate! This time next year, we’ll be paying 30-percent more than today... IMHO of course.
    Regards,
    Dan

    I plan on buying a P380 and a PM9 next month and buying the night sights off of the Kahr website. My smitty has does a great job of installing the NS on three of my Kahrs.
