Thanks very much. Its one of my favorite antiques that I have. These "baby Russians" are rarely seen today esp in this condition.

Of course, many people have the 38 SA 2nd models, with the shortened ejector housing, and call them "baby Russians" which as a baby Russian owner, that really strikes a nerve. The nickname came from the fact that the original Russians had longer ejector housing and these 38 SAs had that same profile. Many people just don't get that concept.
