    Picked this up at the show in Little Rock.
    The stags came with it! Serial number look up shows 1930.

    My traveling companion is 106 years old and is the product of JMB's first mariage...



    In this case it was made back in 1913-1914. I still think this is one of JMB's most perfect designs; tiny, easy to conceal, multiple layers of safety that do not get in the way of function, very easy to control, super accurate at the range it was created to protect and rock solid reliable. In the whole time it has ridden in my pocket the only issue was a few light strikes when the original firing pin spring had finally lost about a third of its original length. Drop in a new firing pin spring a it's back to 100%. With a fairly heavy trigger, the manual safety and the grip safety it's one of the few striker fired handguns I am comfortable carrying even without a holster.



    Lots of folk laugh at the idea of a 22LR, 25acp or 32acp as a self-defense handgun but these tiny jewels were not banned from importation back in 1967 because they were junk or ineffective or unreliable.

    Original grips are a nice option!
