There's a local auction nearby and they have a Sistema 1911 up for sale. I seem to remember these are good pistols, what's a good price?



















D - AERONAUTICA  ARGENTINA  D.G.F.M. - (F.M.A.P.) -COLT 1911A1 TYPE- 45 CAL.   SEMI-AUTO PISTOL with ORIGINAL GRIPS, MUZZLE BREAK, 2 EXTRA CLIPS & POUCH -ALL  MATCHING SERIAL NUMBERS




Stupid editor.

They used to be cheap until Old Painless came along...

I bought one for next to nothing a few years ago...I think about $175?

I fixed it up, duracoated it and gave it to my dad for Christmas





IIRC Colt set up the tooling for them, and all regular 1911 parts seem to fit...they are milspec 1911s.

They bite.  The best shooting 1911 I own though.

What would be good price or a killer price?



Last time I went to this auction there was only five people bidding on guns.




Some go for real decent prices like NIB SA XD 40 $290.

Can't see to much but here's the pic:







OP, can you identify the .38 Smith?

I'll take a wild guess and say its a skinny barrel Model 10.

I don't see a muzzle brake either, but I am willing to bet they have one of those muzzle brake bushings included with the gun.  They don't do anything, but some people like them for some reason.

I don't quite get the hammer bite thing.  I have 3 1911s and none have ever bitten my hand.

I figure on that gun my max bid will be 300 bucks. maybe treefiddy. What say you wise gentlemen??
 









OP, got a value on that Smith? Took a google and it looks like maybe a K200 in .38 S&W.







Would you guys like to see the whole list? It's not long.

I didn't realize it myself until I pulled it out and looked at it just now.  

If you like, I can snap a picture and post it.


I will take your word for it.

I have a few of them.  I have 2 of them in .22 caliber original not kits that I added.

I didn't think you doubted me - I was just offering in case you were curious.


I should have gotten one when they were inexpensive.  Dang it.
Link Posted: 10/27/2010 2:56:05 PM EDT
I love mine; not the greatest shooter in my arsenal, but it is a Pseudo-Colt, so...





Picked it up for $200 and added an original Colt WW2 slide and USGI parts, including a narrow hammer, checkered trigger, new springs, recoil spring plug and slide stop; then parkerized the whole thing to match.

Yay! I get to post pictures of my Sistema!

How she looked the day I brought her home. I was so happy with how well it shot that first day that I returned to the same store the next day planning to buy the 3 remaining Sistemas they had when I picked this one. Sadly, someone beat me to them.



How she looks after bobbing the hammer, updating the springs, parkerizing the whole thing, and adding a set of black rubber grips.



Yeah, that ended up being $249.97 well spent.
