    Does anybody have a Titan tiger 38 special. I got one for cheap off my uncle and want to know if it's worth anything. Bought mainly for carrying as a sidearm hunting

    Imported by FIE before they went out of business in 1990, made by Arminius in Germany, IIRC. Values around $50-$100, depending on condition.

    No - They are the definition of "saturday nite specials"

    Titan Tigers have a major flaw, they have a habit of not indexing correctly. The fix is very simple and cheap, but you need to have a smith check it and make sure it has already been done. I paid $65.00 for mine about 15 years ago, it had been upgraded. They are very heavy for the size. A shoulder holster would be the best option. They shoot strait but have a heavy trigger pull in DA.

    No. Don't pay over $100.00. 70.00 for the pistol, 30.00 for the extras.

    Also be sure to check your states hunting laws, some prohibit sidearms while hunting certain seasons. Usually a ccw license is needed.
