Non-firing Eval of a Pistol
I am thinking of locally buying a pistol and am seeking any advice on how to check out the equipment when I look at it. I have only seen the gun in pictures on Armslist, and I have spoken to the guy, and things seem OK so far. I cannot take the gun to a range to test fire it. If I buy this, it will be untested as far as live firing goes.
The gun is an HK 45C that is a few months old with around 100 rounds through it. I am real familiar with safety testing a 1911 since I have had mine for almost 30 years and know all the things to check. But, I have only held the HK a few times, played with the safety, magazine release, and checked the feel of the trigger release. What other things would be recommended to test things?
