How rare are they? Can you quote production numbers? Certainly they made less of them then then say a standard blued BHP but they are not that unusual.
I didn't say they were rare, I simply said unusual. If you go on Gunbroker I think you would agree that there are not alot of these beauties there. Sure you could find one, and maybe pretty easily, but they are not the norm. Also, check the Browning site. You will not find the .40 offered anymore. Don't know what that means other than they aren't selling, maybe the 9 will survive. I hope so.
"Ah ah. I know what you're thinkin'. Did he fire 6 shots or only 5? To tell you the truth in all this excitement I've kind of lost track myself. But with this being a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off... you've got to ask yourself a question. Do I feel lucky? WELL DO YA, PUNK?!!!"- Harry Callahan(Dirty Harry)
