My ugly duckling is 25 cal semi auto made in Spain called the "Buffalo"
I found it in a cigar box jammed in the back of a desk drawer that would not open all the way. The gun was in pieces, missing hand grips. I cut from wood for grips,I polished, re-blued, and got it firing just fine. I keep it inside an old book in my den, the pages are cut out inside the book to fit the gun.

for some reason, that i can't even explain or put into words, i just never could follow through with selling it. and it's probably the least shot pistol i own. i bought it used in about 2000 or 2001. paid a whopping $250 for it at a pawn shop.
