30 yr old ASM
« on: March 18, 2020, 05:46:08 PM »
I got this a few months ago and don't know how it ended up staying in the original box, unfired, without a mark on it anywhere for 30 years.  Yes it's an ASM, but it's a darned nice ASM, the picture really doesn't do it justice.  Might just have to load it up, but might not.

That's an amazing pistol Columbus. You're right, it's hard to believe no one has shot it in 30 years. It would be impossible for me to resist shooting it!

Shooting it won't devalue it by that much. It's not particularly rare or collectible. Just do it...you know you want to.

What is the date code? I have one marked BD/1994 (which looks like yours), along a spare grip assembly from another earlier ASM that won't fit the frame holes at the top of the backstrap.
