I was able to pick one out of a batch of about 20 the other day. Dated 6/79, all matching with good finish and no apparent structural problems.
I have an ac 44 P.38 which is just fine. I prefer a steel frame...simply a personal bias. This is the first alloy frame pistol I have ever owned.
Please wade in with your opinions of the P-1.
I bought one of those imports last year. I think I got it for $289/319, something like that.
Shot great, no problems with the frame at all. I too would have preferred the steel frame but for the money, it wasn't gonna happen.
Wasn't this the first DA semi used by a major army?
