I know. I've been keeping my eyes out for one, but at the price of Ravens these days, even for unshootable beaters, I'm sure I could come close to a decent CZ-38 for similar scratch. That's not to say that I wouldn't try to work out a deal if I stumbled into one.
Yeah I suppose, but a bunch of Ravens in the hands of a collector who doesn't really shoot them is probably viewed as preferable to having them on the street. Plus, I'd like to think there are bigger fish to fry. By the time .gov worries about a serious collector with some SNS pistols, they'll have already come for everything else.Prolly not the best time to post pics of the family... not like they don't know anyway!!!
Either way - nice "family" ^^
^^^This^^^ :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:And they will have killed millions, because there is NO way they get that far, otherwise.
Do we have contact info for the owner of one of these factory "engraved" Ravens? I can only find this same photo, in various resolutions and sizes, online. I'd be interested to get more information about them, for a project of mine, but there is almost nothing.
When I get the chance to put my thoughts together, I'll PM you.The "engraving" is actually cast into the slide and is exactly the same pattern as was used on the factory "engraved" Jennings J-22 slide.

BTW, I've never seen a NIB factory engraved Jennings J-22. Someone posted on the BJJA forum that Numrich bought the remaining "engraved" J-22 slides when Jennings/Bryco went bankrupt decades ago; I'm sure those slides ended up on a wide range of serial numbers.
