.22 did this?
Look at the magazine, and the slide, see where it says 45.
my mistake pal. i was judging from the spent .22 laying below.
just dont "huff" the aluma hyde.. I didn't even see the 22 case till ya mentioned it!!
I thought it was a .22 due to the .22 spent casing laying below.
the mag certainly looks like a larger caliber. My eyes are not good enought to tell the make of the gun. The large letter does not look familiar.
Just for the record a 22 has the highest
chamber pressure of any small arm.
The only thing that I get for sure is that it is either a .40 or .45...
And I think it's a .45 ACP (not sure - may be a .40 S&w).
What do you want for $168.00 (MSRP) a gun that will last forever?
For about that price, if you look hard, you can find a used (maybe well used) S&W M&P .38 Special revolver, that just might last you forever.
there is no info as to how many rounds have been fired thru this gun.there is also no info concerning what ammo was fired thru it.handloads? +P+? who knows.but any of these things could be the biggest factor in slide failure.I have had Lorcin's,Davis,Jennings and Bryco's,all with cast slides and no failures.but i never shot hot handloads or +P+ loads in them.and i didnt put 1000 rounds thru them either.just checked function,tested sights and put them in the nitestand.
look a lot like the early models of the P22, which were made of pot metal, as far as I have been told. [VERY hard to believe]. Walthers fixed the problem fast, whatever the slides were made of.
i had one of those, its not bad but its very rough.
This picture has been debunked and is totally faked. The gun was cut in half with a hacksaw and put back together.
BTW, I have a Hi-Point C9 and just used it in a 4 day defensive handgun course. It is very accurate, has minimal recoil (due to the weight of the slide), is reliable and has few malfunctions once you break in the stiff springs in the 10 round magazines. I put 700 rounds through it in 4 days and it just keeps humming along.
Looks fake to me and no Info?! Let's get real guys!!!
