Depends on on your hands. The 43 moves around in my hand a lot but it’s a defensive piece not a shoot all day piece. I use the pierce plus one pinky extension and it doesn’t stick out much. I like the slim feeling of the 43 and even with the streamlight light and laser combo it’s still very light.

Added a glock 22 rtf 2 with the fish gills to the collection. Waiting for a ria mapp to come in

Anybody here subscribe to the online Blue Book of Gun Values? I probably should. Been trying to figure out what to ask for an Italian-reproduction black powder revolver and Gunbroker doesn't have much to go on. Prices of the few listed there are all over the map.

Nice and small, grip too small for me, I carry shields, better size for me and I donít shoot Glocks anymore.

I'm with Remo on this the 43 is way too small for me but heck I got paws bigger n most peoples heads. I say shop around, try several in that size and caliber. The shield is a great option equally reliable, the Taurus curve is also a great option. If used is an option the Baikal/Makarov in 9x18 or 380 are great options . They are copies of the Walther PPK and equally reliable and very accurate. One last I would highly recommend is the Sig Sauer P225 or the P938 the are a little more expensive than any of the above though.

+1 on the Shield. In the woods my G20 is good, but for concealed I like the S&W.

Very nice. That will be my next purchase and will likely build my own just to say I did it.

Nice score on the AR.


On the Italian reproduction... In my experience they haven't been worth much more than a couple hundred bucks.

Finally picked up a new rifle that I've had my eye on for a while. Suppressor is paid for but waiting on them to give me the ok.


Only put 50 down the pipe so far. Figure 200 will be a good break in point.

Break-in or Break-the-bank point? .50 can't be cheap to shoot...

Nice pick-up though!

It is an Armi San Marco (imported by Connecticut Valley Arms) Colt 1851 Navy reproduction. Picked up some helpful info from a gun show pal today. Probably worth about $150.
Thanks for chiming in. Much appreciated!
