Well, not really rare but they are getting harder to find. Picked up this little jewel yesterday at the local gun show. You don't see a lot of the Government's around here In Oklahoma. I think I did pretty good, there was redish nail polish on the front site and the guy had it in his front pocket kinda hid. There didn't seem too much interest or it wasn't seen, because he had been through most of the show when I stopped him.
