A model 121...one that got away this past weekend !



Log in to see fewer ads
I went to the first gunshow of the season Saturday morning at one of the local county fairgrounds with the hopes of picking up a nice original German P-38 pistol. I was fortunate and ended up finding a nice original finish, matching, not import marked "cyq" for $525. As I was working that particular deal with the vendor and with the pistol COMPLETELY disassembled in my hands, in walks a guy down the aisle to the side of me with an immaculate, greater than 95% finish Model 121 ! Here I am attempting to stay focused on the first purchase, checking the finish, parts match, looking for hidden import marks, etc and this sharp rifle walks by. I quickly ask how much and he throws back $225. I had the cash and sensed the rifle could have been bought at $200 or possibly less but I couldn't mentally handle both deals at the same time so I let the 121 walk. After I purchased the P-38, I looked for the 121 but it had disappeared into the crowd. It would have been a wonderful buy.
This ever happen to you guys?

I would have dropped that "collectors item" so fast it would have broken the speed of sound, and gave the 121 guy $235.00 just for making me so happy.

But that's just me. Love those quality .22 pumps.

What a horrible ending to the story. Did you ask the 121 guy to hang around for a few minutes? Oh well, at least you got a nice P-38 but don't expect too much sympathy at RFC. Bullet Bob knows what you SHOULD have done.
