Spanish firearms questions

I was looking for firearms at decent prices, and stumbled upon JLD Enterprises. Has anyone heard of them? They are offering millitary surplus Ballester Molina, Caliber .45 ACP for quite nice prices. Should I look into this further or run for the hills? What are your thoughts?

The Ballester is not Spanish-it's Argentine.
The site is legit, and the prices are very good.

Thank you for the update. I have been drooling over these for awhile and am glad to get some reassurance.

JLD was bought out by PTR 91 Inc.

If you're looking at that page that shows Ballester Molinas, Sistema Colt 1927s, and Star pistols, they're all long gone, and have been gone for at least 5 years.

Bad news

That's terrible! Why have they not updated? And thanks for giving me an update since the company will not.
