Local LGS got some we will call police turn in guns. It was real crunchy inside, a good cleaning and works fine. Davis P-380 View attachment 74027
A few years ago I bought a couple Ravens that came out of a police department in Kentucky. One looked like it had been chucked out of the window of a moving car, the other looked brand new. Sometimes these police evidence guns can be bargains... I'd like to have one with a case number engraved on it for my collection.

Make sure you've got the buffer springs really clean and that the buffer is able to move free without hanging up.

As I read your thread title...TEC-9 was what I was thinking. But your right...I've seen those David/lorcins, etc on COPS a few times.

This is a strange subject for me. Basically all things Intratec have somehow become collectible and many have actually become valuable. I suspect Tec-9s are sharply on the decline in terms of use in crime and confiscations, due to the fact that they went from $199 to sometimes over $800. What gets me is that the Tec-9 is a legitimately good design that was often poorly executed (although my DC-9 runs like a top), I'm baffled that since 2004 no one has copied the design, slightly improved it, and put it back into production. Fixed up and with an integral brace mounting point, the Tec-9 could be a legit low-cost PCC contender and reclaim its proper place in gun safes every where.

At one time I acquired a Jennings Nine covered in fingerprint dust. The LGS (who had a sideline biz specializing in selling off evidence weapons) told me it was used in "a crime" in a nearby town but I could never tie it to anything at all.
I think it'd be cool to have a firearm with documentation showing it was used in a bank job or something. However I wouldn't want one used in a suicide or a murder, I'd find that too disturbing.

Yep, cleaned up the buffer springs cause there was alot of crud in there. I will probably check them again, I have some aerosol cleaner again. I only put 5 rounds through it to check function, safe queen now😁

The gal at the lumberyard was asking about the Davis P-380 today.

Ah!

So he is!

I'd heard from some place he was gone!

He took a vacation. Now he's back. Everyone needs a break once in a while. I'm glad he's back too
