    My Local Pawn Shop has one of these. It looks brand new, it might be brand new. The idea of it is really cool. It is small, lightweight. A little thick, but really neat. I'm just not sure about it. Wanted to get your thoughts on it. He will sell it to me for $500.00. There is no follower in the mag. The rounds feed backwards. It's really something. Just not sure. What say you?

    Yep. I saw that. It might be worth taking a chance on. If it's not new, it's dang close. And I could use another .45. And he'll let me buy it on layaway. It sounds like I've pretty much already talked myself into it. ha ha

    For $500 I would jump on that deal right now! Even if I had to put it on layaway. Dude, get it now!

    That is darn near a $1500 MSRP handgun.
    I have been following them since the R&D phase,
    Arne Boberg is like a modern day JMB :eek:

    I think it's an overcomplicated and overpriced design, but at that price, it's certainly worth it.

    I hear ya, Bro... but now that Bond Arms has bought out Boberg,
    I suspect they will make more of these, and it will become more
    price competitive in the near future. It is a very good "long barrel"
    subcompact pistol if they can mass produce it and make it run 100% ;)

    All that being true, I still think I need to get this one. The price is right, and an opoortunity like this may not ever present itself again. The shop is closed Sundays and Mondays, but i left the owner a msg on the answering machine, and I will call first thing Tuesday morning. Do I need it....no. Do I want it now.... heck ya!

    I went by and took a couple of pics! I can only get one to load from my phone. I'll post the other two picks when I get home.

    As someone who gravitates to simplicity, I second your thoughts. Buy that Boberg and trade it into something really worth owning.

    ONLY if it does not run properly ;)
     
  19. I agree. It is certainly a cool gun. different from everything else. He doesn't need it, Its not his only hand gun. Its a cool toy, maybe a nice carry piece, and gotten at a steal of a price.
    What guns are worth money down the road? who knows if this gun will be worth a fortune in 20 years, but i can guarantee you the standard M&P, XD,PPQ,G17 won't be.
