    Not sure, as the dealer offering them didn't state that. It is a 70's production, with a good bit of external wear, but "VERY LITTLE" mechanical wear. Came with 1 mag (made in Italy/probably Mec-Gar). It's a good shooter, as I completely stripped it, inspected, lubed, (it was "BONE DRY") & re-assembled it. Purchased some extra mag's (Inglis) from GunMag Warehouse. Then a range trip to check function on a few different loads.

    It could have been a confiscated gun. Lots get traded-in.

    I don't think so. They had a good supply. Paid a little extra to get a hand picked one. They are a large distributor. Here's the link, from when they were available.

    "I just kept a close watch,"

    I wasn't aware 3 year old minds could retain gun safety lessons, I sometimes nap on the sofa when that isn't my intent, and my three year old is an adept little pickpocket, so I don't take that risk. So - unchambered when she is in the house.

    BTW, that is one drop dead gorgeous lady.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Most of my time in the sandbox was spent in Condition 3.

    And that was fine.

    I've been engaged by Taliban and just stayed in condition 3 for the whole encounter. #becausebradleycoaxial
