Jar, are those VZ grips on that rm380? They look good. I really wish someone made wood ones, but I haven't found any yet. The VZs are the next best looking thing. The rm380 is a good looking pistol, but grips really ice the cake.

No true duplicates, but definitely I have quite a few that are similar.


In the past, I had 3 medium frame S&W .357mag revolvers, though they weren't quite the same (a 3" S&W 65LS, a 4" S&W 19, and a 6" S&W 586). Currently, I have two guns that are basically different sized versions of each other, a SIG P290RS (in 9mm) and a SIG P250 Compact (in .45ACP). I have several small framed revolvers, each a tad different (a 6 shot 2" Rossi 461, a 3" Rossi 461, a Taurus 85CH, and a S&W 442). I have two 1911s right now, a Commander sized S&W 1911PD (1st gen) and an Officer sized RIA Rock Compact, and I used to have a full sized Charles Daly along with the S&W. I will be picking up one or two more (probably within the year), a full sized (undecided on brand, likely a Kimber or Springfield), maybe a 10mm, and if I decide to keep a 1911 in the carry rotation I need one that doesn't have so many sharp edges, so either one that is a bobtail or "melted" like the Kimber CDP series.

The closest to a spare is my group of CZ 75B based pistols. I've had a full sized CZ 75B for quite some time (15+ years). A few years ago I added a P01. Within the last 6 months I added a CZ 75 Compact and a CZ PCR. While I don't love the P01 trigger (it causes trigger bite), the 75B and compact 75's are terrific guns. Accurate, reliable, no/few sharp edges (making them very comfortable to carry), and (other than occasional trigger bite) quite comfortable to shoot. I'm seriously considering making them my exclusive carry pistols (when in a state where I can legally carry) for the 90+% of the time that I don't need something smaller and putting a light on the P01 and making it my HD pistol and retiring everything else for anything other than the range (other than the P290RS and LCP for when I need something tiny).

That's a VZ grip on the black RM380, just stock on the blue.

My - "dream rig" - would be a black leather vest, - with 6 built in holsters for my 6 H & K USP 40's -- like that old Irish dude in "Boondock Saints". ( I only have one right now.)

I've got at least a pair of most S&W K & N frames in 6"-6.5" guns and a few pairs in 83/8".
Have no desire to carry two. Two would be bad enough, six and I would have back trouble.

I've got three Model 19 Smith and Wesson revolvers, and two K-22 "Combat Masterpieces." Until recently I had three Model 27/28's but I sold all but one.

At one time I had a half dozen of each Model 10, and Model 15, but that was back in the day when I fancied myself to be a collector.

Oh, I had a half dozen Ruger 10/22's back then too.

Heh, a lot of my pistols exchange parts...especially mags

My Star collection backs each other up...most switch parts and mags.
Star 40 (40-S&W) & 43 (9mm) literally were made to use each other's mags.
They're one of the very few that ever got that right!

On top of that, Star's 243, 28, 30, & 31 all use S&W 5900 series mags!
Star 240 uses S&W 4000 series mags...

S&W CS40 & CS45 exchange parts, but not mags...
however, the Star M45 uses CS45 mags, and Vise-versa.

Hi Standard Model B uses Colt Woodsman (1st Gen) mags & many parts can be Hand-fitted to exchange.

AND!!! The Marlin Camp 922M uses Marlin 25M, 925M, and XT22M mags...if you drill the mag catch hole for the 922M in the mag.

All top hat bolt-action .22 Marlins exchange parts...
same for the Magnums...all top hat bolts form the 780 to the XT22M exchange parts.

I did the same thing, except with 8 holsters (because I'm really tall)
and it holds my Star & S&W CS collection

Star M243 & M45
Star Ultrastar 9mm & 40-S&W
Star Megastar 45-Super & G20sf 10mm
S&W CS40 & CS45

What a coincidence. I have been saying to my self, that since I love my Nano, to go ahead and get a second one. Just like I did with the Pico. So getting ready to pull the trigger on another one.
Just could not bear being without a gun I love so much. Even thought about buying a third Pico, and putting one in the safe.
