It was, however, obsolete compared to the fighters the Germans and Japanese were fielding at the time. But because it was cheap and proven, a ton of them were built and shipped all over the world.

It is, in my opinion, one of the "prettiest" of the old fighters. It just looks like what a fighter is supposed to be.

Default Colt Clone

This is a Sauer & Sohn .357 Colt Clone SSA. It was made in West Germany in the 1960's. What do you think. I hope the picture uploads.
