Guns that have disappointed me

    He’s sure right about the rust issues with HK’s.

    I didn’t stock them but when I couldn’t convince somebody to not order one I had to be sure to unbox it and wipe/lightly polish it before letting the customer see it to avoid having to send it back, as they invariably had surface rust on the slides right out of the box.

    I attributed some of that to how slow they sell, checking numbers would reveal most had been in supplier inventory for a few years before being sold. More to do with crap finish work, probably rough inside too but I never broke them down to check, let the customer do the warranty thing if needed…like I said, I did try to dissuade them from buying them to begin with by informing that there are a lot of better choices in that price range from companies that do not hate their customers.

    I’m surprised. HK – to many – stands for “High-Kuality”.

    New Jersey State Police (NJSP) once issued HK P7’s to their officers as their official on-duty sidearms. After several accidental self-shootings, all P7’s were recalled. The ‘squeeze-to-cock’ was the point of failure.

    Beretta 92-series were the replacements. Much safer. Too bad Beretta doesn’t make the same design in .45 with a 3-4inch barrel …

    Expat, not sure about NJ but I’m guessing that all happened before Glock seized/bought control of the LEO sidearm market.

    As to the Berettas, I don’t have anything bad to say about their finish or function but the form is another story…if I want an oversize overfat 9mm I’ll have me a Hi-Power.

    Speaking of the soul-less king of handgun functionality, this is a heck of a deal for those so inclined…

    Well crap, now clicking that link shows those TALO’s out of stock, a few minutes ago they were $399.

  6. JTC Says:

    And now available again…weird.

    Anyway a hundred cheaper than anywhere I’ve seen and has the TALO sights (Ameriglo I think). I have a couple of Glock 9’s and a couple of others but I just bought one of these at that price. FYI, it’s a Gen 3 which I like but YMMV.
