    lol I just bought the same thing from the same place! A bit pricier now though. And yes also found a place where I picked up two extra mags, about $30 each after shipping & tax and all. I do plan to get some new grips though, something a little eyecatchy, ya know?

    Someone asked me how long it took Classic to ship it… it took about 4 days to get to my FFL- I think I ordered it Monday and got it Friday, I was surprised. But, it may take longer now with all that’s going on.

    Went to a very small gun shop to look at a new revolver and happened to spy one of these behind the counter. It’s an 85 BB. Supposedly hand picked #1 out of 10 but who truly knows. Also was told that it was issued to someone working in a prison in Italy. Really cool pistol.

    Wasn’t sure if you knew, but the “Y” prefix on your serial number designated it as being issued to the Italian “Guardian Di Finanza “
    In case you were interested.

    I was thinking hard about getting one of these from Classic for several months. What stopped me was I just didn't want to buy sight unseen and then have to go through a dealer even though i found one that only charges $15. I himmed and hawed until they finally went out of stock. I have always used gun shows or local stores except I have bought some off of Armslist, but only from sellers that lived nearby so I could examine the gun first. Yesterday I went to a gun show and found a dealer that had 4 to choose from, all very good. The price was $380 including tax. After checking out the current price of .380 ammo I said no and went home. I have over 100 rounds of .380 that I bought for my PPK long ago. After deciding not to put a bunch of rounds through it until ammo comes down, which probably won't be anytime soon, I drove back. I bought a new 92FS at that same gun show a couple months ago so I expected to like handling the 85bb too. It's a smooth little gun and right now I am happy I went back. I will be even happier went ammo comes back down. Fortunately I have piles of reloads, just not in .380.

    I purchased the same but found words Cheetah "no where" on the firearm. I'm also seeking the manual for same The rack sirations forward of the rear sight are bit longer and the trigger guard is rounded steel then blunt squared. Also had the S&W Bodyguard… hated it due to mag keeps falling out as one fired it! sent it for repairs to the S&W Co. was sent back to me in the same conditions… they've lost this customer forever. also around the 85BB are "redness" look close… on some area of the steel, on mine at the safety lever itself and appears on your trigger sides, slightly also on mine trigger sides any ideas what that is?

    Got a 81 (no BB)a while back from cf.was a month after they said approximately 10% of that batch was left.no hand select.was like yours or maybe even a tad better .& Extra mag seems to have never been used.not a mark on it.No box like that.FedEx box. & bubble wrap.from all I've heard ,hand select is not needed.Have a feeling it's CF version of a extended warrantee.spend that $ on ammo or mag next time.+ The little bit of wear is character.from what I can tell my 32 was carried by a Left handed person that wore a wedding band.shot very little..those 380s are nice.may get one.not sure yet.going to order 1 set of thin G 10 grips.single stack is more than likely fine as is.but 2 tenths of an inch on each side ,nearly 12 an inch will make a big difference on the double stack..thx for video take care.& Holsters.PS .I found 2 nice ones in bargain bin at a gun store.ElPasso saddlery marked .45 GOVT&older Bianchi with a thumb break.$5 apiece..Glad I found those.realized adjustable cant is a must on IWB .never tried IWB holster before.It's actuality doable with a cheetah.was presently surprised.

    Because of several good reviews I have read about this handgun, I ordered one from classic. I even paid an extra $30 for a handpicked one. The one sent to my ffl was so bad I had to sent it back.

    How is the finish in person? I am very picky with my toys. Am very tempted to get one.
