If you like that sort of thing, more power to you. Just my 2 cents.
Well If anything it's something to grab for the historical value. Anyways your not going to get any resale revalue out of something you can snatch up for $100.

Eh, all I really want to do is break even and clear out some room in the gun safe. I think I'm going to use the money to Mag-Na-Port my .44 Magnum Contender barrel. Thing is lighter than a revolver, and the recoil is...well, substantial to say the least.

I think I'm going to sell my 6906. It's a neat little pistol, but I like my 459 better and don't really see myself doing much with it.

I brought my 6906 to the indoor range to test fire it because I'm about to trade it, and ended up having to get the gunsmith to polish out a bur on the feed ramp, so now it runs perfectly.


I rented a H&K Mk.23, and it was very disappointing. Trigger sucked, accuracy sucked, handling sucked, etc.

The people it was made specifically for avoid it like an AIDs-infested hooker. What did you expect?

The problem is that being a good paper puncher doesn't necessarily make something a combat weapon. That's one of the reasons early M16s had so many problems.

The guy I was going to trade it to ended up backing out of the deal, so I'll probably keep it if I can't find anyone else who wants it. I figure it'll be something I could use as my "car gun" after a while if I hold on to it
