to get another pistol that is. when i was a youngin' i ended up selling all my guns to pay the bills, that included a 9mm uzi pistol, 357 s&w distinguished combat magnum (a 629 i think),and a .44mag desert chicken. i've been back into firearms for about 3 years now, and after 18 long gun purchases, i finally scored a pistol. it's a 1958 argentine colt systema 27. haven't shot it yet, no case for it yet, not a clue in the world how to carry concealed with summertime clothing. ups to my door, god i love that c&r. i put a replacement spring kit in it, and a new barrel so i can keep the serialled one that came with it in good shape. i'm glad that it's black, my collection has too much wood in it.

C&R must be pretty sweet... I'm getting jealous now.

Who did you get it from? I'm just starting to get into pistols with my C&R after aquiring every rifle on the planet!

$351 to my door from southern ohio gun.they got it from jld, so you may save a couple if through them. made in argentina on colt equipment with colt factory reps to oversee the production,and it comes stamped "colt". i've taken too much ribbing at the vermont shoots for not having a handgun, i finally broke down. there are plenty of c&r handguns out there,i just wanted a colt .45 for some reason.

I think there was a short Collectibles article in this month's issue of Guns & Ammo about the Argentine. Check it out.
