Check this out. Every time we hopped a ride down to Udorn from LS 20-Alternate for smokes and a beer/Scotch run, I’d leave my “issue” Model 39 9 mil in my wall locker in the hootch. I carried a Model 19 w/ JHPs under my shirt. When we departed again on the klong flight back up, I’d zip into the big warehouse there at the AOC and grab a new one and a holster. They had crates of the these and Browning Hi-powers, too. I sent a bunch of them back to my sister that Fall and told her to put them away. I gave them to all my friends when I got back and managed to keep one. This is a real NIB. It was clean and has a low (87XXX) number. Nobody liked them. Who’d trust their life to a seven-shot semi-let alone a 9mm? It’s like a Vespa. They’re fun to ride but you wouldn’t want your friends to see you on one.
