    Good Question. Maybe you have the new all metal version.

    Got a picture of the gun, or just the roll stamp on the slide?

    Is your gun a JH or a JHP? Straight frame or curved?

  5. Come on mel.

    Now you need 1 of each model with a finger print frame.

    Maybe they are Thomas deeb reserved models

    It's a JHP. It replaced my JH.

    Does anyone here have a JHP that weighs 35 oz?

    Not me. Just weighed them today...

    My green JHP with empty mag was 46 oz, 42.85 without.
    For those with math challenges, the mag alone was 3.15 oz.

    The older black JCP was 43.10 with empty mag, 39.95 without mag

    I would weigh mine, but I do not have the

    Mary-Jane Wholesaler Scales


    :D My scales are for my silver coin weighing. Stops at 500 grams, or just over a pound. :(

    Zamak is an interestingly inconsistent metal. Maybe a batch today weighs differently than a batch tomorrow? That'd be the only thing I can think of.

    It is an alloy composed of several different metals so it is possible that the variation in the zamak itself is to blame.
