I wandered into a gun shop today and saw a m-101 dura-matic on one of the shelves. It was from Hamden. I was intrigued in that it had wrap around wood grips, but also that, unlike my h-d military, the slide did not lock back, nor did it appear that there was a provision for it to do so, so I guess it is normal? It would not even stay back with the slide in. The guy had it tagged for $270-ish. It had some wear on the bluing, and I was wondering what one should expect from this pistol.
