Luckily there were still NOS springs and firing pins available then that I got. It should run another 100+ yrs.

Saying this 51 is “my” favorite 100 yr old firearm says a lot. It surpasses my Colts, Mauser’s and yes a S&W or two.

Similar tale for me Jim.

Mrs Magger held this 1917 Model M in 32, declared it hers, and that was that. I'm firmly a believer in "Happy Wife, Happy Life" and a nice pistol is a small price to pay.

The upside is I got "mine" back in the form of a 1924 380 soon after. 🙂

These both get shot pretty regularly, they run like scalded cats, even with the original magazines.
