Default Picked up a nice 3913

I picked up a very nice 3913. It hasn't had more than a couple of magazines through it. I paid four benjamins for it.

I have noticed the Al frame 3rd gens look yellow when they are dry. If you wipe the frame down with a good gun oil, it looks more gray and matches the slide better.

You done good, very difficult to find a 3rd gen for less than 5 bills these days, and those are the lesser desired ones.

$400 is a great price for an excellent condition 3913.

Nice!
I would have paid that in a heartbeat.

I just found a brand new Galco holster for a 3913, so I am actually looking for another 3913 to go with it.

Nice score on the model 3913. They are a great carry option.

I have a couple 3913s -- they're the LS and NL models. I also have several 3953s, that are the DAO models of the 3913, and my EDC in a Don Hume H715-M WCS IWB holster.

I had to announce my holster choice like others before me.

I have a 3914, and a 3953 (my favorite) but I just couldn't pass this 3913 for the condition and the price.

Default 3913

Purchased my 3913 used back in 2019. Came with Hogue grips and 4 factory mags, two finger extension and 2 flat base for $400 OTD. As I was leaving the seller said wait a minute and went upstairs . Came back with a new Wolff spring kit for it. Said when he bought it he got two kits, put one in the gun. Said when he sold it to me it had 500 rounds on the kit. IMG_4318.jpg

I finally got one and it's on the way. Worked out great, we just got a carry gun for my Bride (HK, sorry but she is part German so i guess it's ok) and it was a perfect time for me to get a new gun. I just hope my FFL doesn't get tired of me calling him every 2 hours ...

I installed a Wolff spring kit in my 908 pistol about 12 years ago, and also polished out the bearing/wear points of the trigger mechanism. It now has an extremely smooth 9.5 lb DA pull and crisp 5.5 lb SA pull.

A friend of mine had one of those. I could put 5 shots under 2.5 inches at 25 yards. The sights were dead on, which doesn’t happen often. It is a crying shame those guns aren’t made anymore.

You have quite a bargain.
