Default A 3913... finally!

I've wanted a 3919 for a while. When I had the money, I couldn't find one. When I found one at a decent price, I didn't have the money. Well, good things come to those who wait, as my momma used to say. I found this one in a pawn shop this morning. No box and only one magazine, but it's super clean. It's been shot very little. Not bad for $400 out the door...

Looks very nice.

I just got one myself at a LGS. Paid more, through.

3913LS

BTW, MidwayUSA just had a magazine sale. Bought three more. Don't know if the sale is still on.

And, as a bonus, Midway USA has factory magazines on sale for $26.24 a piece. Ordered 4...

Outstanding at $400 OTD. That's $50 to $150 better than most of us will do for that package.

I know it's sacrilege but I prefer the MIM versions (black trigger and hammer) of these pistols. I think the trigger is better...could just be me. Congrats on a fine gun.

I'd agree about the MIM versions generally having smoother triggers, and I usually look for them over their non-MIM counterparts. I do have a few forged/non-MIM 3rd Gens that have very nice factory triggers as well, though they all seem to break closer to the back of the trigger guard.

Glad you were able to finally get what you were looking for. The same think happened to me when I was looking for a 3" model 65. I had given up and it showed up. Let us know how it shots.
