Asking price was $400, but I offered $350.00 and the sale was made. The pistol has been languishing at a local gun-shop since Christmas so they were very open to a deal I guess. I purchased a 1907 last year (along with a Smith & Wesson "Lemon Squeezer" Safety Hammerless) and according to the serial numbers both models were made in 1909. As you can tell my latest acquisition has led an easier life than the pistol I purchased last year. However they both have very clean bores and are in very good mechanical condition. Wolff makes springs for the model so I'll be ordering replacement springs; something I do as a routine when I purchase used pistols (semi-auto). It's a neat little pistol and I find it very easy to shoot.

I would have absolutely no use for that little pistol, but for $350 I'd have bought it on general principles. It's one of those little semi-autos that's always looked a bit ahead of its time to me. Congratulations on your purchase!

A few years ago I felt the same way, but now I have several pieces that are modern and have real-world applications. Guess I've reached the point where I collect pieces that catch my historical interest and have no link to tactics.
