A friend of mine said he saw a .40 S&W in a pawn shop for $399. I have a few 9mm's and may be interested. But before I make the trip I would like some input. Are there any German made 40's or are these the S&W's? I would assume the markings would be the same expect on the slide. What do you think of the gun and the price?

All the "SWalthers" were .40 and black slides on OD or Black frames. There were no Titanium coated or QPQ "SWalthers" so you should be good to go. $399 is a fair price for sure.

Saw the gun today. Yes. It is an all German made .40 looks good too. Only thing I ran into a full size P-5 with two mags for $535. It has some were but in pretty good shape. No what is a guy supposed to do?

jake, at shooter's supply off new lagrange road they have a used Ti .40 AS with the old style frame and rail.  i can't remember the exact date code, but i think it was late '90's.  i think it may have had the interarms import mark.  the price was $519, but it looked real close to brand new.  i didn't field-strip it, but the wear on the part of the barrel/chamber exposed in the ejection port showed very, very little wear, so i guess it wasn't fired much. the finish also show no wear, so it wasn't handled/holstered much either.

just a little FYI if you're shopping around.  i saw this about 1 month ago.

Gents,
Just be sure of what you are buying. Is it a Titanium or is it a QPQ?

The only downside I have heard of with a Titanium is that some people are noticing finish wear more than others. Other than that, .40 and an "original" (now AS) style trigger is a winner.

Either way, $399 is a good price.

Nope. It was a Titanium 40 all German made...not in bad shape...it had a 10 rd mag with an orange follower if I remeber...are these good shooters? I was thinking of either adding a used Sig 239 for the same price or a P-5 to my collection....I must admit that my type A personality is such that once I find something I like, I stick with it. I have 5 Colt SAA's and 5 Walthers...would one more hurt?

IIRC, the one i was talking about earlier was the titanium-coated model, but i wasn't paying too awfully much attention to the details since it was a .40 and i'm a 9mm kinda guy
.

if it was a 9mm, it would either be at my house or still on layaway

I love my .40 P99. It's just a standard AS, and it's more accurate than I am.

Which explains why I'm going to the range tomorrow...
