Depending on condition and markings, that may be on the high end of what they usually go for. Not bad guns, but is NOT a 1911A1. It shares grip screws and a magazine with a 1911A1- nothing else. The Sistema 1927s are 1911A1s. Ballester- not.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
Yeah I realize its not the same but still looks like a neat bit of history. They made a lot of them from what I read so not very rare. Thought it might be fun at the range. Maybe I'll make an offer and see if they will come down on price. Would love an old GI 1911 though.
The Molina is like almost having a 1911, but not quite. It's similar to having a knock-off Rolex or fake Oakley sunglasses. It might look cool to some people, but others will likely see it as a knock-off. They remind me a lot of Llama pistols. No way I'd pay $500 for one.
