Well...I kinda hit a small mother load after an ice storm from hell the other week.. ice sucks, especially more than 3/8 inch of ice... Ok....I had a M08 and P32 deal fall in my lap
I found an oddity, I've never seen till now.. a 40th anniversary Russian....Izhevskiy Mechanicheskiy Zavod IJ-70 Makarov, it's in .380acp, 1100 of them were imported through Big Bear Arms in '93, they were serialed from 0001 to 1100.
In the same lot was a FEG PA-63 and a FEG PMK-380, other than caliber, 9mm Mak vs. 380acp, the PMK-380 is the for export while the PA-63 is the native Hungarian military and police forces side arm of years gone by. Both have aluminum frames and steel slides.
Then to finish it all off, there were 2 Egyptian Helwan 9mm, copies of the Beretta M1951, I have the commercial Maddi variant the Cadet.. these two are only about 2900 off in serial numbers..
So, now I'm broke, the ice has melted, the power back on, and Christmas is coming...
