Expect to see something that you don't see much of these days- two fine weapons made better than they have to be with excellent materials and old world craftsmanship and purchased for a ridiculously low price. It dont't get much better than that!

But you will have to clean them THOROUGHLY--and expect a stiff DA pull...nothing that can't be managed tho...

I hear there's a difference on grips or something? Is that true? Like some are correct, some aren't? Does that make sense?

I'll post a pic when I get them........... TIA

Tomovich, welcome aboard! From what understand the flat grips were originally used in Poland and the thumbrest grips were put on the pistols to satisfy export standards or something like that.

Kempin,

He'll love both-em, I had 4, gave one to son-in-law, and now I have 4 again, [1970] with original flat grips, now I have two sets of original grips but I keep my Zee grips on two sets and Dennis's red wattle checkered grips on the the other two when I get the second set. I am really hooked, I totally enjoy shooting all of em ;D I'll be saving the orignal grips for a rainy day.

Yes, some come with the original military-type grips, both panels are flat. Some come with some "sporting" grips, the left panel has a thumbrest, those were apparently used to replace the "military" grips to help make importation possible under BATF regs...

Well then I hope I get "lucky" with the correct flat grips. I'm a "correct" kinda guy. :-)

I think they only come with one magazine but SOG sells spare magazines for $9.95 each. I dont know if they sell the holsters.
