Spanish Destroyer Carbine
 
Somebody offered to trade me one for my Win '95... It sounds like a awesome rifle! I couldnt find one on the online auction sites, so I have no clue what ones worth... I read that theyre chambered in 9x23 Largo (Thinking it would make a neat pistol/rifle set for my Medusa!)

What can you guys tell me about them?

The Destroyer is a nifty carbine. I can get you one for cheap $$. Your '95 is worth way more.

Could you give me a ballpark price?

This one is still in cosmoline, mags are in the bag. I think it was 270.00? Not sure but I'll call.

Yeah... Keep the '95. The Destroyers go for around $250 to $280 range when they're cleaned up. Like JP said, your 95 is worth far more.

I would not consider such a trade unles there was a bunch of $ coming your way with it. 9 X 23 Largo is available, but not really plentiful.

The one I own is chambered in 9MM Parabellum. These are not expensive firearms. They were used by the Police in Spain during the 1920s. The value on one as posted is under $300 dollars. :)

I got one!! It is one of the neatest rifles ever! :D
It may not have the range, but its every bit as accurate as my '03... Mines in 9mm Largo. The other day the first time I took it out I was popping bottles like nothing! I was shooting from 20 - 100 yds and didnt have to flip up the ladder sight. I guess the Spanish dont mess around with prisoners!:eek:

If anybody comes across one, get it!! I definitely recommend one for any collection!

What would be the "correct" pistol to go with this? Do the pistol and rifle share the same magazines?
Mine came with a nylon sling, what does the correct sling for this rifle look like?

Nice! How many mags did it come with? If you need anymore, I saw a few on gunbroker for about $15. They looked a little rough, but they may work.
