Hello all...

Well, I finally received my new "toys" yesterday from my friendly local FFL holder. About two weeks ago I placed an order through Aim Surplus for two of their Arcus-94 9mm pistols. I ordered the full size HP clone, and the compact HP clone. I'm VERY pleased at what I've seen so far. While I haven't had a chance to shoot them yet, I have noticed that both pistols are TOP NOTCH quality! For the price I honestly didn't have high expectations. No machine marks, very solid, no scratches, and a nice single action trigger pull. Aim Surplus is currently offering both styles at $219.95 each. When you figure in the shipping charge and the FFL fee, the cost came to $250 each. If any of you are in the market for a new 9mm pistol, I would highly recommend that you go and check them out. When I have a chance to get out and shoot them I'll be sure to leave a future post with my experience with each pistol.

Happy ans SAFE shooting!

That would be an interesting range report as sometimes the clones even outperform the originals. At those prices, that would be embarrassing.
Thanks for the heads up.

neutom72,

Please don't get caught up in judging a book by it's cover. I know very little about Arcus pistols having never owned one but, with handguns looks mean nothing. Try a Charles Daly some folks have good luck with them but, for the most part it takes some work to get them up to reliable par. Funny thing is you won't find a nicer looking gun around.

I wish you all the luck and good shooting in the world and hope your guns meet up to high standards. My point is when you fire the weapons the first few times is be observant and objective. Also review your safeties and go by the book and test them all before you load the weapon. That is the same advice I would give anyone with a pistol they are not familiar with.
