FS Ballester Molina
« on: May 13, 2014, 05:56:42 PM »
Have a nice Ballester Molina from the last of their production (1952-53?).  85 to 95 % of the original blue finish.  This pistol was a civilian pistol and has no police or military markings.  No renumbering on barrel, slide or frame.  Serial numbers on frame and slide match, magazine does not.  Import mark.  Grips have been replaced with newer Ballester Molina grips.  $600 plus shipping.  Not WBAS legal as it has no grip safety.

You are correct they are handy.  I had one years ago that had been beat up and parkerized.  But I sold it.  When I came across this one I had never seen one in really good condition so I had to have it.  When I put it in the safe with all the other 1911s, I realized I had made an unnecessary purchase.
