It's easy to forget in these modern times (and several generations of pistol design later) how cool and desirable it was considered back in its day. I'm talking not just the pistol for itself but for the 14-round magazine capacity too. I liked the Model 39-2 for sure... but when the opportunity finally came up for me to buy one or the other, I went for a late-production Model 59 instead.

35 years later (and earlier this year), I corrected the "hole" I had inadvertently created in my collection by finally scoring my very own ANIB Model 39-2!
