LEM only on HK for me. It's a one trigger pull gun that way,  with a 'long' initial take up, so it eliminates the burden of training for two trigger pulls.  The DA pull on their newer DA/SA guns is abominable, (HK45 and P30).  Way past the the common "it's a safety feature" mantra. It borders on ridiculous.

 

You also get second strike capability and the ability to ride the hammer while holstering --- if either is your thing.

Ahh, now I recall dry firing a DA/SA P30 in a local shop. I need to familiarize with the LEM for future reference.

 

I remember when my brother stocked up on a lifetime supply of 3 proof marked, made in W. Germany SIGs. Silly me for not going along. The funny part is we knew this was going to happen.

My first Rifle:

Tried it out last week and it works very nicely.  Now I need to join a proper shooting range and dial in the sights.

Anybody a SIG fan?  I was browsing in my LGS last week and stumbled across this:

 

DSC01807.JPG

 

A BNIB W. German Nickel 228.  Absolutely unfired sitting in a collector's safe since the early 90s.  It came home along with a 9mm Springfield 1911.  I think I might need to sell something to avoid buyer's remorse!

Is that nickel plated with german proof makes, on bbl, frame, slide? The 228 is considered one if the best  and most reliable service pistols they're produced. O the other hand are those replacement grips?

 

Envy.

Nope, 228 in 9mm.  The 228 predates the 229.  The 229 was released for .357SIG and .40S&W as the 228 was too light for the added recoil and would not have been durable enough.

Yes, nickel plated, W. German roll marks, KB dated German proof marks.  Absolutely original and unfired.  This gun sat in a collector's safe for 20 years.  It is still sticky with cosmoline.

Been away from here for awhile, and haven't been doing much acquiring on account of being in graduate school, but I do have one new addition down here with me to share:

 

Kahr PM9

 

Kahr PM9. Cute little bugger. Kinda beats the everloving snot out of your hand though. Not really a daily shooter, but oh-so-nice to carry.

I had my PSS fitted with a turned bolt and an Arther Jewel trigger. The action was trued and it was then bedded into an AI stock. Shoots sub MOA all day I just love it.

Nice.

 

I just picked up a little Sig P238.  Going to try it tomorrow.  Hope it performs well!

Gah you bastard!  You beat me to it.  =(  It should do very well for ya.  To my knowledge the only thing maybe better in class is the Walther and that's at a slight weight and size penalty.

 

Which version did you grab and why?

Yes, I have the walther PPK.  It's a little larger and heavier.   The p238 is pretty much the smallest gun I can buy in MA from a dealer. 

 

I got the black slide and rosewood grips.

 

The first P238's had some bugs, so I'm hoping they worked them out by now.  Going to try it tomorrow and see.  Fingers crossed.  Should be interested to see how it compares to firing the PPK.
