Are you perhaps referring to the Astra version? This Spanish made 9mm Largo one walked into a gun local show. Stock number matches to gun as do two of the mags (1 ten rd and one 20 rd). The 10 rounder allows you to keep it loaded in the stock holster. It even came with two boxes of old 1930's Steyr made ammo.
Another happy story. The owners father picked it up in the 1950's. Guy had kids and didn't want them to get their hands on it. Beautifully made-even the interior of the pistol is jeweled Asking price was $450.00. Seemed fair to me!

Sorry about the size of the pics-I'm having trouble re-sizing them

Thanks. As you guys know it really is the luck and timing. I do look for this stuff of course but it seems these crazy type deals come along out of the blue when I'm not looking or expecting them. A lot of people know I like this stuff and steer tips and sightings my way.

And that's how is done...

I have a feeling you and a few others do the same thing...

It's timing too... Like, years... These deals came along a lot more often 20-30 years ago...

I'm not personally interested in it, but thought I'd pass it along to more knowledgeable folk. I wouldn't be able to make sure it's correct or be able to restore it.

Bought a new set of springs from Wolff Fri,

Barrel hurting just little, some pitting, but it's "ok", rifling still sharp, the rest of the guns great condition makes up for it... Maybe it'll shoot out some too...

Leather has been totally soaking up neatsfoot oil... Stock had little crack and that's fixed now too...

Now the weather needs to dip below 90 and a trip to the property to shoot is possible... 102 today..

Back in the late 80's I worked for an old man who collected guns. He showed me two of the Red 9's that he had bought for himself & his son. He said that he paid $3000.00 for both guns back in the 70's. His son died in the late 70's & the man died in 1998 due to a car wreck. No clue where those two red 9's are today, but they were both beautiful guns.

I remember the old guy used to complain about the ATF guys wanted to give him a hard time about owning the guns & the wooden stocks. Finally they changed the law & left him alone.
