Default 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.

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!
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!

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.
